Construction Planning and Scheduling 2 Follows a logical progression, introducing precedence diagramming early and following with sessions on activity durations, resource allocations, network schedules, and more, and reflects current trends in scheduling (short-interval scheduling, computer scheduling, linear scheduling etc.) and includes sessions on arrow diagramming and PERT. With an eye on application, it includes a unique discussion of contract provisions related to scheduling and incorporates a sample project throughout.
Physical Performance of Buildings 2 Examines performance rationale and performance requirements. Outdoor and indoor climate conditions are described and calculation values are discussed, the performance concept is specified at the building level and at the building envelope level, and heat-air-moisture material properties are defined.
Method of Construction Projects Risk Assessment 2 Comprehensive risk analysis in construction projects. MOCRA can be described as a hybrid method. Unlike other methods, MOCRA allows its user to allocate risks in the material-financial plans. This substantially increases its utilitarian value because it gives a project manager or a direct contractor the possibility to evaluate the consequences of risk factors occurrence
Statics and Strength of Materials for Building Construction 2 An accessible and visually oriented introduction to structural theory, with illustrations and examples of building frameworks and components to enable students to visually connect theoretical concepts with the experiential nature of real buildings and materials.
Control of Traffic Systems in Buildings 2 Presents the state of the art in the analysis and control of transportation systems in buildings focusing primarily on elevator groups and covers the theory and design of passenger traffic and cargo transport systems, together with actual operational examples and topics of special current interest such as noisy, on-line and algorithmic optimization; simulation-based modeling of passengers and goods; control of cooperative agent-oriented systems; proposal for a benchmark to compare new control methods and deployment and testing of transportation systems.

Construction Equipment and Methods 2 Establishes a full ability to understand and solve problems, communicate solutions, and manage their implementation. This subject helps build these skills through: a holistic view of construction technology, safe use to maximize productivity and how the principles of science are being applied; linking the material in this course to previously obtained knowledge such as statics, geotechnical engineering; and pedagogy designed to promote knowledge, and skill acquisition, such as case studies and open-ended problems.
Accounting Fundamentals for Construction 2 Covers the basic financial skills required for being successful in the management of a construction company and its projects, including usage of financial reports, supply and managerial skills, time scheduling and control, planning and budgeting, and control of project costs and financial commitments.
Construction Project Scheduling and Control 2 Provides an efficient, well-thought-out project scheduling crucial to achieving success and manages all aspects of the project, such as adjusting staff requirements at various stages, overseeing materials deliveries and equipment needs, organizing inspections, and estimating time needs for curing and settling—all of which requires a deep understanding on the part of the scheduler.
Legal Environment for Engineers and Architects 2 Basic principles of the law and court systems in both the United States and globally, Basic principles of contracts, Relationships of individuals and society focusing upon such areas as agency, partnerships, corporations, insurance and governmental regulations, Basic principles of tort law including concepts of negligence and product liability, Basic principles of property ranging from real property to intellectual property, Impact to the daily practice of a design professional involved in a construction project and The role of the design professional in litigation.
Probabilistic Methods for Structural Safety Evaluation 2 Presents recent developments on the use of probabilistic methods to ensure safety of structures following a review of the state of the art in this field, introduces an artificial neural network design algorithm using Bayesian method and application in damage detection; a probabilistic approach for multiple cracks identification in beams; and reliability analysis of single-degree-of-freedom system using important sampling method.
