What impact has this department had or does it promise to have?

The School of Construction (SoC) has for a long time enjoyed a unique position in the state and region. Market share analysis reflects this as shown in the table below; Architectural (ACT) and Construction (BCT) Engineering Technology fall into the same CIP code (15.0101) and capture 100% of the market in Mississippi.  These programs also are part of the Academic Common Market since they are not offered in neighboring states.  Interior Design falls in the Interior Architecture category (04.0501) and captures 94% of the state share.  The graduate programs are also unique and capture 100% of the market share. The low share for Industrial Engineering Technology is misleading however since that category (15.0612) is shared by programs in Applied Technology and Technology Management, Manufacturing Technology, Industrial Technology and Robotics and Automation Technology.
