Construction Engineering and Management

by Sophie Hayek | June 8, 2011 2:41 pm

Construction engineering faculty and students research an array of construction engineering and management-related topics. Current research projects seek solutions to the three functional areas of construction engineering and management: management techniques, construction operations and construction methods.
