Construction Management Association of America (CMAA)/ Associated General Contractors (AGC), USC Student Chapter

USC CMAA/AGC competes in the annual ASC Region 6&7 Construction Competition of western universities, which is a simulation of real job conditions, including estimating, scheduling and project management. Every spring we cosponsor a symposium on campus in which 240 individuals from industry present on novel projects or ideals within the industry. We have monthly meetings, hold professional and social events, participate in community service projects, info sessions, tailgates, field trips, and guest speakers. We are a great organization to learn the tools of the industry, expand your industry network, get internship/job opportunities, and create new friendships.
