    The webinar will provide information on the content of the ASCE’s Construction Engineering Certificate Program. It is specifically designed for civil engineers, including those with significant experience, who wish to gain recognition for their professional learning experience, fill the industry skill gaps, and improve their performance. The typical CE undergraduate degree includes little preparation in real-world skillsets like cost estimating, scheduling, contract administration, and other project management skills that most engineers will need as they grow from an entry-level design position into project and program management. Most US university Construction Engineering and Management (CEM) programs reside as postgraduate degrees. ASCE’s Certificate Program is designed to bridge the skill gap for working professionals. By enrolling into this program, civil engineers can obtain the fundamentals of the CEM skillset without the need to earn a master’s degree. The webinar will cover the details of the curriculum of the Certificate Program and provide an opportunity for interested professionals to ask questions about their personal requirements. 

    Presenter: Douglas D. Gransberg, Ph.D., P.E., FRICS, M.ASCE is the president and founder of Gransberg & Associates, Inc. a construction management/ project delivery consulting firm.

    Join us for the second eLearning webinar in the Career Booster Series sponsored by the ASCE Committee on Younger Members.
    For most engineers, the thought of giving a speech to a group of strangers can strike terror into their heart.  As a civil engineer, it is difficult to avoid having to give presentations to various audiences, including the public.  In order to improve communication with the audience, civil engineers need to be proficient at public speaking.  It will make their job easier, improve the timeline of their projects, and make them a valuable employee.  
    The webinar presenter, Shoots Veis is a practicing engineer, and often makes presentations to councils, conferences, community groups and municipal bodies that contract for infrastructure. He has been on the other side of the podium, too: during a stint on the Billings, Montana, city council, he listened to a lot of engineers talk about projects. 

    Presenter: Shoots Veis, P.E., M.ASCE, is the author of Public Speaking for Engineers, Communicating Effectively with Clients, the Public, and Local Government.
