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.”
At the CU Denver College of Engineering, Design and Computing, we focus on providing our students with a comprehensive engineering education at the undergraduate, graduate and professional level. Faculty conduct research that spans our five disciplines of civil, electrical and mechanical engineering, bioengineering, and computer science and engineering. The college collaborates with industry from around the state; our laboratories and research opportunities give students the hands-on experience they need to excel in the professional world.
