Who should attend

This course is intended for any civil engineers with interest in learning about engineering. This is also beneficial for construction engineers, maintenance engineers, design structural engineers, supervision engineers and planners.

About the course

Engineering education is currently facing unprecedented challenges and opportunities. This help to educate the architectural, engineering, and construction (A/E/C) professionals of tomorrow by complementing their traditional engineering education with the transfusion of information technology and process automation concepts through the necessary reorganization of their career.

This course presents a framework for an interdisciplinary course sequence in civil engineering, project management, and information technology centered on the concepts of fully integrated and automated project processes (FIAPP). The described sequence enables participants to benefit pedagogically from working in truly multidisciplinary teams, to enrich their educational experience by bringing real world projects to academic settings, and to teach them fundamental principles in integration and automation of project processes highlighting the value of such integrated project management systems (information management, planning, design, construction management, procurement, operations, and maintenance).

Furthermore, the course sequence addresses deficiencies in current one-dimensional educational curricula and needs expressed by educators, students, and industry professionals. The paper presents experiences and knowledge gained from the aforementioned academic sequence on FIAPP and on the utilization of three-dimensional computer models and associated databases in the management of A/E/C processes.

The Civil Engineering is a broadly based discipline that includes a variety of specialties in the areas of mechanics, structural engineering, construction materials, environmental engineering, water resources engineering, geotechnical and environmental engineering, and Transportation engineering. The Civil Engineering program is designed to advance the professional development of experienced civil engineering graduates and professionals in the civil engineering arena by extending their knowledge and equipping them with broad research and process civil engineering skills, enabling them to make a key leadership contribution to their chosen fields.

Course Objectives

Upon successful completion of this course, the delegates will be able to:

  • Apply and gain knowledge on professional civil engineering
  • Use a highly individualized program of study directed toward completion of a dissertation that is expected to make an important contribution in their selected area
  • Design as well as to analyze and interpret data
  • Design a system, component, or process to meet needs; furthermore, they are able to perform civil engineering design by means of design experiences integrated throughout the professional component of the course
  • Identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
  • Understand professional and ethical responsibility; furthermore, they understand professional practice issues such as procurement of work, bidding versus quality based selection processes, how the design professionals and the construction professions interact to construct a project, the importance of professional licensure and continuing education, and/or other professional practice issues; understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global and societal context and have the requisite broad education
  • Engage in life-long learning and recognize the need for it
  • Apply knowledge of contemporary issues
  • Use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice
