  Case Study: Construction Management Program Supports Construction Workforce Training
The aging of current construction workers and the lack of qualifications and experience of new graduates is a problem in keeping balance between productivity and profit in the construction sector. The construction sector in the state of Wyoming plays a fundamental role in the economic well-being of the state; however, current construction workforce training in Wyoming is limited. This lack of training caused construction skill attainment to lag behind that of adjacent states. This reality and its effects on the Wyoming economy was acknowledged by the Wyoming Legislature in prompting the Governor of Wyoming, Mark Gordon, to sign a proclamation announcing the month of October as a “Career in Construction Month” in the State of Wyoming. The Wyoming Legislator and the University of Wyoming (UW) has committed to the development of a four-year Bachelor of Science in Construction Management program at UW.

The Construction Management program has created a tandem program to train the thousands of construction workers already employed across the state, and who are not able to commit to a traditional training platform. With the support of the construction associations across the state, the following five training modules were designed: Construction Documents and Contracts, Construction Plan Reading, Construction Bidding and Estimating, Construction Scheduling, and Construction Site Management. These modules are offered to companies and their workers at no cost while they are employed in the field, with the promise to obtain a higher education attainment level and eventually earn a higher wage. Due to COVID restriction, the training is offered via Zoom from the UW campus. The time commitment associated with a module is 8 hours, where learners receive a certificate of completion upon successful completion. When workers are well-trained, their companies also benefit; thus, improving the overall economic well-being of all. This case study is ongoing in nature to be expanded to high schools across the state to overcome the projected shortfall of qualified construction workers in upcoming years in the state.

  Lessons learned participating in the 2020 Solar Decathlon Competition to design and build a Net Positive Energy Home
A reflection on the good, the bad, the ugly of participating in the Department of Energy 2020 Solar Decathlon Local Build Challenge. Students collaborated with the local city planning and building departments to design and construct a Net Positive Energy home. We will discuss what went well, what was a challenge and where students got a real world education in how a budget and schedule are a moving target.
