Explorer students are given the opportunity to participate in hands-on activities focused on engineering education including the use of science, technology, and mathematical applications to solve real-life problems related to the engineering, design, and construction of a building.
**When registering you will have the choice of attending one of two sessions: 6:00 to 7:00 pm or 7:00 to 8:00 pm. Please choose what works best for your schedule.**
Architectural Engineering (AE) focuses on the integrated design, creation and operation of buildings. This includes engineering of building structures, mechanical systems (heating, ventilation and cooling), electrical systems (power distribution and communications), acoustics and lighting. Buildings are designed by a team of professionals and AE’s play an integral role in that team.
Construction Engineering (CONE) blends fundamental principles of engineering with new and emerging technologies for the planning, design, and management of the construction process for the infrastructure that sustains our world. This infrastructure includes highways, bridges, ports, tunnels, dams, power plants, railways, and underground utilities. Construction engineers bring others’ interests and ideas together with their own, aiding in the design of structures and applying science with engineering methods.
Construction Management (CM) is the management of construction projects. Similar to a conductor for an orchestra or a coach for a sports team, the CM is responsible for ensuring that the team is organized and performing in a safe and efficient manner while delivering the project on time and within budget. Often, the CM works with the designer (an AE, for example) to assist in creating a more constructible, maintainable and environmentally friendly design.
