Beginning in the fall of 2014, the University of Texas at Arlington plans to offer a new Master of Construction Management (MCM) degree with an option to take courses online to help meet industry demand in Texas, especially in the thriving North Texas region. It will focus on management of construction projects in three main categories: (1) heavy, which includes highways, pipelines and infrastructure; (2) residential and commercial construction; and (3) general construction. Southern Association of Colleges and Schools' approval for the program is required and it is expected by August 2014 . Once its approval is obtained, students may apply and be admitted to the program.
