    Fundamentals of Project Scheduling and the Critical Path Method for Students 

    Date: Wednesday, October 3, 2018 | 2:00 - 3:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time
    Register for webinar

    Effective project management is a key element of every engineering project.  Project scheduling is a very important tool, used to schedule and track project activities over a specified period of time.  The Critical Path Method allows project team members to identify activities that are on the critical path and cannot be delayed without delaying the project. Activities that are not on the critical path and have “float” can also be identified. For engineering students interested in project management, this is a critical skill. 

    Candace S. Sulzbach, P.E., F.ASCE is an Emeritus Teaching Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Colorado School of Mines.  
    Jessica Ostoyich, A.M.ASCE, is a field engineer with Mortenson Construction.

    Why Professional Engineer Licensure Matters 

    Date: Thursday, December 6, 2018 | 3:00 -4:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time
    Register for webinar

    Licensure is the mark of a professional. It's a standard recognized by employers and their clients, by governments and by the public as an assurance of dedication, confidence, skill, and quality. Your PE license tells the public that you have mastered the critical elements of your profession. It demonstrates your commitment to the highest standards of engineering practice. For consulting engineers and private practitioners having the PE license is essential. The PE after your name offers many advantages, for instance, you earn prestige and your earning potential rises. Across industries, be it government agencies, educational institutions or private companies, the trend is to hire and contract with licensed professional engineers. This trend will continue in the future. 

    If you are unsure whether or not you should pursue engineering licensure, register for this webinar and find out:

    • Why should you earn the PE license?

    • At what point in your career should you pursue licensure? 

    • What resources ASCE offers to help you prepare for this pivotal step in your career?

    Presenter: J.P. Mohsen, Ph.D., F.ASCE, is the Course Director for ASCE's PE Civil, S.E., and PE Environmental Exam Review courses. Dr. Mohsen has prepared and helped engineers pass the PE exam for over 20 years.
