From feasibility studies to planning, design, procurement, construction supervision, and post-construction assessments, ENGINEERING EXPERTISE is required to ensure optimal efficiency and safety, while minimizing costs and environmental impacts. The design of highways, roads, and streets requires a delicate balance between the physical demands of a project, the realities of constraints faced by the DPWH as the engineering arm of the Philippine Government, including their Contractors and the Community, and the need for design to recognize the setting of the asset in the environment.
This course seeks to strengthen the technical knowledge of civil engineers and ensure the successful implementation of road construction projects. Project implementation depends primarily on the design, and that there are some projects that exhibit defects that brought upon by poor designs which causes huge impact while construction progresses.
Since most public projects are roads and highways, the engineers in DPWH and their Contractors are expected that they have the right knowledge to implement the construction project deserved by Filipinos. They shall be called the RIGHT PEOPLE supervising the project. If you plan to become a DPWH and Contractors' / Consultants' Project Engineer, it is your big opportunity to learn to design or at least understand the design of highways.
After this course, you may be able to join the prestigious Road Engineering Association of the Philippines (REAP). One of the affiliate societies of the Philippine Institute of Civil Engineers, Inc., the REAP is an association of engineers who promote and advance the science and practice of road engineering and related professions.
At the end of this course, the participants/enrollees are expected to be able to: (1) Explain the design, data, criteria, standards, procedures for construction of Highways; and (2) Enhance their managerial skills in design and project implementation of roads.
The methodologies to be employed will be lecture-discussion, and slide/audio visual presentation. The PDFs are downloadable and advised to be printed. Intellectual exercise/examination will also be given to gauge the technical learnings acquired by the enrollees. The enrollees are required to pass the said examination.
The participants/enrollees to this class shall be civil engineers / civil engineering students, and other disciplines related to the topic.
Engineers with expertise (with MSCE) on project design, construction methods, materials quality control/assurance implementations, construction supervision and management.
You may complete this online course/class in three (3)-Days.
Total number of hours of training is about 25 Hours (Lectures, Review, and Final Examination).
The completion of this course depends on each enrollee's pace and may be scheduled by the enrollees in a regular manner, say every day or every other day.
The access to this course/site is up to three (3) months only (automatic). Be sure to finish the course before the expiration of the said access.
Certificate of Completion/Participation/Training will be given to the participants who will successfully complete the requirements above. The certificate may be used as:
- Self-directed learning and/or life long learning and academic track for your need of CPD points.
- Application for DPWH Accreditation of Project Engineers as well as Materials Engineers.
