Abstract:

The Texas AM University System Department of Facilities Planning Construction is one of the largest university engineering organizations in the United States. It maintains engineering and construction capabilities to respond quickly and efficiently for the needs of the entire university system. The Department of Facilities Planning Construction is administering approximately 40 active construction contracts. The emphasis for this internship was on engineering and construction in the Texas AM University System. Proper engineering and construction methods have become increasingly important and a necessary function in the quest for quality construction completed on time and within budget. The cost of construction materials, labor, and equipment have soared and technology is rapidly changing the construction techniques and kinds of materials and equipment used. Prudent engineering and construction methods are essential to attain successfully completed projects. Effective administration, engineering, scheduling, quality control and quality assurance are primary ingredients to effective engineering methods.
