  • Abstract:
    Construction engineering and management (CE&M) is successful, and it continues to grow and evolve. The construction industry is working hard to improve and CE&M is a leader in that effort. There is much still to do. And those who can do it best have strong backgrounds in CE&M built on a solid understanding of engineering sciences and engineering design. But we must still raise an important question. As we expand and grow in CE&M, are we actually putting less engineering capability in the classroom and on the job site? The industry needs design engineers who understand CE&M and engineers who specialize in CE&M. We have developed strong CE&M courses and programs to meet those needs. The industry is constrained by its many problems and our CE&M research removes those constraints and helps the industry advance.
