CEM program receives $3M grant from CDOT

Faculty members from the Construction Engineering and Management program are part of a local industry-academia collaborative team that has been awarded a nearly $3 million grant by the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT). The grant, entitled, “Project Management Employee Development Program (PMEDP)” was given notice to proceed this month and will support a three-year project that seeks to “enhance CDOT’s project management techniques, practices, and applications through a comprehensive blended and integrated employee development program in order to reinforce a culture of project management within CDOT.”

CU Denver is partnering with LS Gallegos & Associates Inc. and AECOM on the project. The CEM program is excited to serve as the lead on one of the largest program elements, Training Course Implementation. The CEM program is confident such work, as highlighted in the proposal, will solidify the fact that “In the past CDOT has had a close working relationship with CU Denver. This program will provide the opportunity to continue that relationship to the benefit of CDOT and CU Denver.”
