This unit aims to provide students with the understanding of construction engineering within the broader project discipline of project management as applicable to the civil engineering profession. Students will be able to apply basic construction engineering management principles including site preparation and construction work planning, quantity and cost estimation, project scheduling and site management as practicing engineering professionals. An introduction will be provided to the use of Building Information Models (BIMs) to generate constructability reports, coordinate, plan, schedule and provide estimates.
These are the Learning Outcomes (ULO) for this Unit
