  • CE 2030 Management of Engineering and Construction projects

    This course provides the essential aspects of the “Project lifecycle” process from the initial conception phase through the completion phase of a project. Specifically, by focusing on the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) projects, students will be introduced to important concepts related to planning and financing a project, budgeting, and scheduling, and managing and controlling a technical engineering project.

    Semester: Spring 2021, Fall 2021

  • CE 3010 Project Business Planning

    Construction projects only occur when the needs of the market, sponsors, end-users, and society are sustainably met. In this course, students will learn how to: 1) plan successful business cases for construction projects considering technical, societal, financial, legal, environmental, and market limitations, 2) evaluate and select the best alternative, and 3) express it through a business plan while increasing their entrepreneurship competencies.

  • CE 4015 Industry Workshop: Bringing Theory to Practice

    Uniqueness is part of a construction project nature. However, if you study real-world cases hand-in-hand with CEM practitioners; patterns, and principles of decision-making emerge. This course is co-taught in partnership with field engineers, project managers, subject matter experts, and executives from the top construction companies of the region, in a series of case-study sessions designed to bring theory and practice of CEM into the same room.

    Semester: Fall 2021

  • CE 4025; CE 6025 VDC Coordination and Control

    Technologies are revolutionizing the way 21st-century construction projects are delivered. In this course, students will learn how to use Building Information Modeling (BIM) to 1) support the decision-making over a project life cycle and 2) improve coordination between stakeholders throughout the design and construction stages. With this hands-on course, students will learn how to integrate all models of a project to visualize construction processes and better predict, manage, and communicate project outcomes.

    Semester: Spring 2022

  • CE 5035 Construction Estimating and Bidding

    This course provides students with an in-depth understanding of how a general contractor pursues, estimates, bids and procures work. The course will cover the full range of activities from conceptual estimating, to scoping and bidding projects, to the submission of proposals to the general contractor’s clients as well as the procurement types and the corresponding strategies that a general contractor employs in the pursuit of these procurements.

    Semester: Spring 2021

  • CE 5500 Construction Scheduling and Control

    This course focuses on teaching theoretical concepts and practical techniques for scheduling and control construction projects. The course provides students with the ability to prepare a comprehensive schedule for a project, including bar charts, network diagrams, resource profiles, and an earned value analysis. It emphasizes manual and computer-based approaches.

    Semester: Summer 2021

  • CE 6500 Civil Design and Management

    This course will build from fundamentals learned in other civil courses and apply technical skills toward project tasks. Consider this course like a position within an engineering consulting firm - the lecture, assignments, and projects are formatted similar to a workplace environment. The course content will focus both on the application of design as well as project management, which will support job searching and career development.
