This course is not only benefiting the estimation engineers. this pertains to each area of Civil Engineering as every area has its own role to play in optimising a project.
Right here, we would speak numerous options to boom the functionality, performance, efficiency etc. of a project. how to optimize the value of a project without affecting its functionality is a big challenge. The course consists of mostly case studies and case to case analysis.
