Construction Engineering Principles

Date & Duration : 2 Days


Purpose of this course is to develop skills in the construction engineers working on project sites, to make them capable of delivering their project successfully, both technically and financially. To achieve this purpose, this course is aimed at enhancing their knowledge and skills in different aspects of construction engineering, which has direct impact on effectiveness in quality of project delivery.
This course is also aimed at covering different working techniques to make them more efficient construction engineers, which will enhance the contribution of construction engineers towards KEC, for successful and profitable construction project implementation.


Upon completion of this course, the participants will be able to

  • Define payment units of different items,
  • make unit conversions,
  • make fair predictions of lengths, heights and distances without actual measurements,
  • correctly interpret item descriptions,
  • prepare bar bending schedules,
  • prepare BOQ,
  • measure work and prepare bills,
  • check sub-contractors’ work,
  • identify deviation from scope and identify extra items.

Who should Attend

Diploma and Graduate Civil Engineers (from 2 to 10 years of experience) of construction team working on Project sites. Engineers working in testing labs, Billing Section, Quality Control / Assurance departments.
