ENCE201
(Perm Req)
Engineering Information Processing
Credits: 3
Grad Meth: Reg, P-F, Aud
Prerequisite: ENES220 and MATH241; and permission of ENGR-Civil & Environmental Engineering department.
Corequisite: MATH246.
Credit only granted for: ENCE201 or ENCE203.
Exploration of algorithms for solving problems in several important areas of numerical computing: roots of equations; matrix algebra and the systems of linear equations; function approximation, numerical differentiation and integration; and ordinary differential equations. Issues of solution accuracy, robustness, and efficiency are also considered. Numerical techniques are presented in the context of engineering applications, and example problems are solved using a variety of computer-based tools (primarily MATLAB).
ENCE422

Restriction: Must be in a major in ENGR-A. James Clark School of Engineering; or must be in the Construction Project Management Minor; or must be in the Project Management Minor.
Learn: the fundamentals of accounting; project cost accounting principles as they apply to project management; project cost accounting; and the fundamentals of engineering economics.Topics include: project feasibility analysis; reading and analyzing financial statements; cash management; cash flow analysis; depreciation and taxes; and impact on profitability; the principles of activity based costing; net present value analysis; the framework for project performance measurement, cost performance indices, and earned value analysis.
Prerequisites and restrictions do not apply during the summer term.
ENCE423
Project Planning, Estimating & Scheduling
Credits: 3
Grad Meth: Reg, Aud
Restriction: Must be in a major in ENGR-A. James Clark School of Engineering; or must be in the Construction Project Management Minor; or must be in the Project Management Minor. And permission of ENGR-Civil & Environmental Engineering department.
Learn the fundamentals of project planning, estimating, and scheduling. Understand the concepts of planning; to reduce uncertainty, improve efficiency of the operation, to set and meet objectives, and to provide a basis for monitoring and controlling the work. Be introduced to: the concepts of resource definition, assignment and management, and; the basics of project estimating (pricing) methods including global pricing strategies, types of estimates, pricing processes, overhead and profit, and project financing.Learn the basics of project scheduling including; bar charts, network-based methodologies, and linear scheduling techniques. Emphasis is placed on Critical Path Method (CPM) scheduling, a network based methodology. Be exposed to the use of scheduling software and will actually develop a CPM schedule for an actual construction project as part of a semester project.
Prerequisites and restrictions do not apply during the summer term.

ENCE623
Introduction to Advanced Scheduling
Credits: 3
Grad Meth: Reg, Aud
Prerequisite: ENCE423 or ENCE662.
Credit only granted for: ENCE623 or ENCE688S.
A Combination of lecture and hands-on use of software to develop advanced knowledge and skills necessary to master advanced scheduling techniques for project management and control will be used. No software purchase is necessary.
ENCE625
Project Administration
Credits: 3
Grad Meth: Reg, Aud
Principles of project administration procedures from the viewpoint of a resident project manager or project engineer on a construction or engineering project. The course specifically addresses the project administration responsibilities of the project manager or project engineer in the engineering, design, or construction industries. Students with a background in the private sector or the government sector will benefit. The course takes a project team approach for improved job efficiency, outlining a project team operation in which the office project administrator delegates to the greatest possible extent all those project administrative functions that can be done more efficiently in the field. The class also addresses the responsibilities and risks that a project administrative manager is likely to encounter. The course is suitable for students, engineering and design professionals, project managers, experienced contract administrators, and owners interested in the special administrative problems of engineering or construction.
Class has weekly videoconferencing.
ENCE661
Project Cost Accounting and Finance
Credits: 3
Grad Meth: Reg, Aud
This course reviews the fundamentals of accounting; examines project cost accounting principles, applications, and impact on profitability; examines the principles of activity based costing; covers the elements involved in cash management; introduces the framework for how projects are financed and the potential impact financing has on the projects; and a framework for evaluating PC based systems and what resources are needed for an effective project cost system.
Video conference meets Monday at 7:00pm and Tuesday at 3:30pm.
