    BCN 6642 Value Engineering in Construction

    This course has a purpose of introducing students to the fundamental principles of an emerging and increasingly important service rendered by constructors to their clients.  The course uses classical value engineering as defined by the Society of American Value Engineers (SAVE) as the basis for instruction.  Relevant issues such as life cycle cost analysis and decision analysis are also introduced to students.  Exercises consisting of full-scale VE studies are conducted and used as the basis of student evaluations.
