Course Description

COURSE:  WENG 400 Life-Cycle Cost Estimating

OBJECTIVE:  For each student to comprehend and consistently apply life-cycle cost estimating principles, tools and standards to Air Force programs to more effectively plan, program, budget and execute Air Force infrastructure requirements.

DESCRIPTION:  This course empowers "project owners" (design and construction professionals) to generate, review, manage and/or finalize the programmed amounts and independent government estimates. Students will master life-cycle cost analysis and the four DoD cost estimating methods. Graduates will become Authorized Air Force Cost Estimators.

Note: This course will require a high degree of mathematical competency. While graduated engineers and architects should be capable to complete the curriculum, they should expect substantial homework.

SECONDARY AUDIENCE:  Other degreed Civil Engineer Squadron engineers and architects.

GRADE:   GS 9 and above, 2d Lt and above. (Applicants who apply and do not meet the rank minimums will need to demonstrate a scholastic background both in advanced mathematics and cross-disciplinary construction, as well as a duty need for the authorization.)
