Internships

Potential employers like to see that graduates have gained practical experience through summer internships. So, in addition to the practicum provided through on-campus course work and various service projects, each student is required to work for a construction company for at least one summer (a minimum of 400 hours) during his or her college career. This fulfills the requirements of the CM 2431/2441 course sequence.

Summer internships are typically paid jobs secured by a student's own effort, however JBU's CM Department holds two Company Days a year during which employers from more than 10 construction companies and organizations come to campus to meet and interview students for internships and employment after graduation. After an internship is complete, the student fills out a one-page form describing their work activity. This form is reviewed by the instructor and mailed by the CM Department to the employer for verification and comment.

Eagle Construction Company

Our Construction Management students not only learn about construction, but also apply their knowledge on the job through JBU's student-run, Eagle Construction Company (ECC). The company performs all the typical activities of a residential or small commercial builder.

Through the ECC, seniors manage the construction of several small residential or commercial building projects. This includes dealing with permits, schedules, budgets, materials purchasing and subcontractors. By providing labor for the project, freshmen meet the CM 1112 and CM 1122 course requirements.

“At JBU, we want to incorporate Christian ethics in the classroom by teaching the process of construction from a biblical viewpoint.”
