Facilities

Because our majors benefit from hands-on experiences to to assist in their learning, they need up-to-date labs and research facilities. Each school maintains and updates its learning facilities to provide real-world and technology experiences for their students. In addition, certain labs were created to focus on one type of research, led by faculty in the department.

The AutoIC Lab develops and leverages advanced technologies to support construction engineering and management, construction automation, and sustainable infrastructure, including building information modeling (BIM), natural language processing (NLP), artificial intelligence (AI), virtual reality (VR), and Construction Robotics.

This area is a large two-story facility with an overhead crane. Each semester a wood-frame, steel-frame, and concrete structure are erected by the students. 

Development of surveying skills necessary to measure distance, angles and elevations to required accuracies that allows proper layout for most construction project sites.

The cities we will need tomorrow will be nothing like what we can imagine today. Yet, what we build now is going to be part of them.

 

The Project Management Lab (Knoy 422) provides construction management software and other online resources. General computer access for construction management technology students is available outside scheduled class hours.

The Scheduling, Estimating, and Safety Lab (Knoy 416) provides 26 workstations for construction management technology students, providing access to numerous software packages for estimating and scheduling of construction projects.

The Soils Lab provides students with an environment where they are able to receive the knowledge and skills that will allow them to be experts in their field. Students will learn how to use gradation curves through soil sieve analysis, determine soil's maximum dry densities and optimum moisture contents and measure soil plastic limits, liquid limits, as well as strengths.
