Project Development and Construction Methods Faculty
The adjunct faculty for Project Development and Construction Methods have decades of experience planning and overseeing power system construction. The course begins with an introduction to construction proposals by a consulting engineer who will cover types and costs of line materials, property right of ways, and electrical capacity.
Next, a design manager currently working at a regional utility will cover regulatory oversight and alternative projects, and introduce the students to real-world case studies. A professor with Gonzaga University’s Mechanical Engineering department, with extensive high-level industrial and government project management experience, will then take students through the pre-planning process, including scheduling, procurement and project monitoring.
Finally, a retired project manager will discuss construction techniques and equipment, and present the technical specification process, covering information students will need to submit a project proposal.
