CM Department News
Be sure to check my updated list of open positions here. One of my favorite things about this job is when former students come back to Sac State to hire current students. Alums from BAGS, Rudolph & Sletten and Clark Construction have open positions. Hiring season is officially here!
Along those lines, polish your resumes and think about creating a LinkedIn profile if you haven't already done so. If you have, update it. If you're interested, send me an invitation to connect and I'll put a link to your profile on the Talent Exchange page.
What's Going on in Classes
CM 121: On Tuesday we will be discussing reinforcing steel and masonry. However, before diving into that, I will give you more background on the St. Francis High School Dining Hall project. There have been several good questions in lab and I finally realized that I have given you very little background on the project. Thursday's class will be on structural steel and miscellaneous metals. In lab this week, you will be estimating the slab on grade for the SFHS Dining Hall. You will perform an estimate that includes a fully detailed estimate for the placement and finishing of concrete (that means takeoffs and detailed estimate of the MOLES).
CM124 Lab: Not exactly sure yet. However, we are likely going to be heading to the Downtown Arena project next week, which will be very awesome. Here's what it looks like as of today:
CM 126: Class has been CANCELED on Monday because I will be at the Tricorp Hearn golf tournament. However, so we don't miss a step, I am posting a group assignment that will be due next Monday (October 13th). See SacCT for details. On Wednesday, we will get back to PRESENTATIONS! We will start promptly at 1:30. Not to get too far ahead, but the following Monday, Heman Chand and Jovan Petrovic from Whiting-Turner will giving our second guest lecture.
