The Bert S. Turner Department of Construction Management is
a well-regarded program of the University’s award-winning College of
Engineering. One of the leading components of the program is its collaboration
with the State’s professional community, an effort through which Broadmoor has
been able to help educate the future construction workforce for many years.
This guest lecture to entry-level Construction Management
students focused on coaching students about the challenges and problem-solving
skills necessary to manage the inevitable changes that transpire over the
course of a construction project’s life.
In speaking to more than 75 students, over the course of two
separate class periods, Manion and Park brought their collective real-life
experiences to bear in helping the students understand the best ways to
mitigate these situations while keeping a project on its time and budgetary
After fielding numerous student questions, the two had time
to participate in one-on-one conversations with the students and discuss with
Schneider further guest lecture ideas. The course consists of a dynamic series
of guest lecturers throughout the semester, and Broadmoor is grateful for the
opportunity to have played a part in this important part of the learning
experience of this year’s Construction Management class.
