Cost Engineering - Effective Estimating and Cost Control of Engineering and Construction Projects
After participating in this course, you will be able to:
- Apply the basics of project execution and control
- Understand estimates and prepare control budgets
- Prepare meaningful cost reports
- Use project schedules
