Associate in Construction Management-DTA/MRP


This degree is a Major Related Program designed for students planning to transfer and to prepare for American Council of Construction Education (ACCE) accredited majors in Construction Management at Central Washington University, Washington State University-Pullman, and University of Washington-Seattle; the degree also provides coursework for transfer into Eastern Washington University's Bachelor of Science in Technology-Construction Management. This degree meets the requirements of the Statewide Construction Management DTA/MRP Agreement.

Elective credits should be planned with the help of an engineering advisor and be based on the requirements of the specific program at the baccalaureate institution that the student plans to attend. This two-year program requires students to be calculus ready by second quarter of the first year. Students not well prepared in high school mathematics and science should plan a three-year program at Centralia College in preparation for transfer to a four-year school. The main emphasis in the first year should be to strengthen mathematics, basic sciences, communication, and reading skills.
