The accrediting body for CIM is the National Steering Committee (NSC) for Concrete Industry Management.
The CIM program at Texas State is accredited by the National Steering Committee.
The mission of the CIM program reads as follows: The CIM program at Texas State University aspires to be a nationally recognized student-centered, industry-oriented program that produces exceptional graduates that are knowledgeable in concrete technology and techniques, and capable of managing people and systems to promote products, services and devices related to the concrete industry.
There are only five universities in the nation that possess CIM programs, and the program at Texas State University – San Marcos is the newest of the five. The other four schools are New Jersey Institute of Technology, Arizona State University, California State University at Chico, and Middle Tennessee State University, the oldest of the five programs and the program designated by the NSC as the “flagship” program of the fleet.
