Message from the Department Head

Spring 2019

The spring semester is underway and, true to form, Mother Nature is reminding us she is still in charge via the occasional blizzard and crisp sunny days.  My great respect for those who plow snow, clear our sidewalks, and assure the heat is on grows each time we have a new weather event.  I am so thankful for the behind-the-scenes people who keep us safe and warm.

The Jerome J Lohr College of Engineering Career Fair on February 12th is rapidly filling – a good sign the economy is strong in the region.  All our programs are being heavily recruited – Construction Management, Operations Management, & Electronics Engineering Technology – reinforcing the observation it’s a great time to be in the job market.

Preparations are underway for capstone presentations at the end of the semester.  We have a number of great process improvement projects for regional industry in the OM section and there are 3 EET projects focused on design applications.  This spring the CM capstone class is competing in The Pursuit using an actual bid/build project from a Minnesota contractor.  The ‘winning’ team in the class will get to represent SDSU at the regional competition in Minneapolis in April. 

In closing, I would like to send a special thank you to our alumni, friends, and stakeholders who make it possible for us to deliver high quality academic programs, applied research and industry outreach that make the Construction and Operations Management department successful.

Keep in touch!
