New Course Catalog 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 three DoD cost estimating methods. Graduates will become Authorized Air Force Cost Estimators. Estimating is not a universal skill. Applicants should evaluate their ability in both advanced mathematics and cross-disciplinary construction to be successful in estimating. *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.*
PRIMARY AUDIENCE:  Programmers, Project Managers, Operations Flight Engineers, and Higher Headquarter & Civil Engineer Squadron Engineers & Architects in support of the production of cost estimates.
SECONDARY AUDIENCE:  Other degreed Civil Engineer Squadron Engineers and Architects and Technicians, and Higher Headquarters counterparts.
PREREQUISITES: None
DELIVERY METHOD(S):  Online Course
