MSUM students are doing amazing things. Our students embrace diversity, challenges, opportunities, unique experiences and continue to produce incredible results. Our students participate in student organizations, attend and present at regional and national conferences, compete at regional and national competitions, collaborate on faculty-mentored projects, gain hands-on experience through internships, help coordinate community service projects, and more. Many have won prestigious scholarships for academic excellence and many have won awards for their stellar work inside and outside of the classroom. See what the students from the Construction Management program are doing.
Points of Pride
All Construction Management students sit for the CQE Level 1, Construction Fundamentals Exam when they are enrolled in the CM 496 Capstone Experience. The Exam is developed and monitored by the American Institute of Constructors Certification Commission. The exam has been given each semester since 2000. The students have scored at the national average or higher 22/ 26 times that the exam has been given.
The CPC Level 1 is given each semester at MSUM. During the spring 2013 semester, 13 of 25 students passed and 5 of 10 students passed fall 2013. The spring 2013 results surpassed the national average by 4.5%.
The test has ten curriculum areas of assessment and each area establishes a minimum acceptable score. The MSU Moorhead CM program averages were greater than the national averages in 9 out of the ten areas. Both the program and National scores showed numerous areas of weakness. Overall the national scores were lower for each semester than they have been in the past. The results of this exam still show that students who graduate from the MSU Moorhead receive an excellent education and well prepared to enter the workforce.
