A construction engineer must be able to understand and solve problems, communicate solutions, and manage their implementation. The book will help build these skills through: a holistic view of construction technology, its safe use to maximize productivity and how the principles of science are being applied; linking the material in this course to their previous courses (such as statics, geotechnical engineering); and pedagogy designed to promote knowledge, and skill acquisition, such as case studies, open-ended problems.
