American Society of Civil Engineers Announces International eLearning Initiative
June 14, 2017
With a flexible format, peer-instructor interaction, video lectures, and interactive course content, eLearning offers a fast way to meet continuing education goals.
The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) has launched a series of new, premium guided online courses (GOCs) that provide rigorous learning for international civil engineers in high-demand topics such as construction, architecture, structures, water, forensics and sustainability, to name a few.
ASCE’s GOCs deliver online instruction via six- or 12-week modules.
With a flexible format, peer-instructor interaction, dynamic video lectures, peer collaboration and interactive course content, GOCs offer a faster way for engineers to meet their continuing education goals and earn continuing education credits (CEU) or professional development hours (PDH).
The Society has also announced its new Construction Engineering Certificate Program which comprises six GOCs – four courses in the core path and two elective courses.
Through the courses—taught from the perspective of a master’s level instructor who is highly experienced in construction engineering—engineers will acquire skills that will help them excel in their current position or advance to a new one.
Upcoming courses include:
- Pricing & Bidding – Unit Price Jobs (six-week starting July 17)
- Principles of Critical Path Scheduling (six-week starting September 11)
- Permeable Pavement Course (12-week starting September 11)
- Fundamentals of Rebar Cage Safety During Construction (12-week starting September 11)
- Planning for Water Treatment Plant Design (12-week starting September 11)
- Principles of Construction Contracts (six-week starting September 11)
