Highway Engineering

In the future I want to become a Highway Engineer, as I'm interested in highways and roads and bridges, and I'm aware that that's a branch of Civil Engineering that focuses most on transportation and bridges and stuff like that. While looking up colleges I found majors for both General Civil Engineering and Highway & Transportation Engineering, and although I'm going with the 2nd choice there, what exactly is the difference? I'm asking since Highway & Transportation Engineering basically is Civil Engineering, just with more focus on well, Highways and Transportation. Since my interest lies in roads, highways, bridges, maps, and transportation(on the world-wide-web I'd be called a roadgeek), Highway & Transportation Engineering would be my best career choice, correct. After looking around, I learned — Highway design and Transportation Engineering are specialties within Civil Engineering. The license to practice both is the Civil Engineer Professional Engineer registration.

Road Construction Costs

Construction workers are tearing up the street about three houses away from my duplex apartment. I have noticed more bugs in my home recently, particularly centipedes (my least favorite bugs in the entire world). Could this be due to the road construction, or is it any other factor? My landlord is coming to treat our entire basement later this week – hopefully that will help. I have tried Raid, a dehumidifier, and Diamataceous Earth with no success. Well, I have your answer right here. Here is any bed time reading regarding centipedes: It is probably NOT the road construction, but the damp environment under your building judging by the above article.

It's been another long hot summer. If you have ever worked construction then I'm sure any of these scenarios will look very familiar to you. Enjoy.

Railroad Construction

In the bathroom, me and a friend, talking. Then the old railroad construction came up, and the number of deaths and local salem, oregon burials of emigrant workers building it came in to question. After speaking to others on the web, I found the answer. Poppy- I can tell you that the Railroads didn't bury folks in the roadbed. I can tell you that the death toll on the high country of this country was simmering bad. However, if you would often learn more about the history of Western Railroading, you might just check out the State of California Railroad Museum's website. If you're interested, the museum is located in Old Town Sacramento and quite frankly is one of the west coasts best railroad museums. I also believe that Porland, Oregon and Seattle, Washington have fairly substantial museums of this type. But most significantly the club that can get you pointed in the right direction would be Friends of 4449 out of the Brooklyn Train Yard in Portland Oregon. Look them up and by all means take a tour of their Roundhouse. You might just be suprised. Good Luck.

Heavy Construction

I am a manufacturing engineering technology and a mechanical engineering double major and am wanting to know how I can go about designing and building automobiles, ships, or heavy construction machinery. What kinds of companies should I be looking at? And what qualifications should I be shooting for. Well, I have your answer. No individual can design and build automobiles, ships, or construction machinery. You can be a specialised member of a team to design parts of automobiles, ships, or construction machinery.


Construction Technology

I am currently an Electrician Apprentice and have a AAS in Construction Technology. I am considering getting a BA in Construction Management from the National Labor College. My only concern is, would it be difficult to get a job with this degree since I don't think its a well know school? Thanks. From what I can tell… This is a not-for-profit traditional college that is accredited by Middle states (regional accreditation). The degrees will be seen as legitimate degrees. A lot of people have degrees from lesser known colleges and they get jobs.

Construction Management

The question, Why is there overpriced Web development? Has a simple answer and a simpler solution. There is overpriced Web development because there are consumers that will pay the high price. Web development started to be overpriced when the Internet began to be the home of successful entrepreneurs who, while they knew their own products, ideas and services, knew nothing about the Internet. They paid dearly for Web development experts who could launch their online business and make them a great deal of money. They did not balk at the overpriced Web development fee because they did not know that it was overpriced.
People pay for others to do what they don't know how to do, don't care to do, and / or don't have the time, energy or inclination to learn how to do. The less the customer understands what the Web developer offers, the greater the overpricing can be without that customer balking.
So, the answer to why there is overpriced Web development is that there are people who don't care that it's overpriced and cannot do it themselves.
The solution to the Web development overpricing then, is to learn how to develop your Web site yourself, or learn enough about the development to realize what is overpriced and what isn't. Once you understand at least some rudimentary technology you can at least do some Web development comparison shopping on your own.
To avoid overpriced Web development learn the basics of the workings of the Internet and the creation and maintenance of Web sites. Learn what it takes to create a site, to launch it, to keep it running. Comparison shop at least ten different Web development firms, and note the variations in each offer. Advise each of what the other has and their fees (assuming it is lower. ) Document each offer, check the references each provides and ask pointed questions. Start a bidding war, and you'll cut down on overpriced Web development.

How To Estimate A Construction Project

Can somebody help me put this a compound inequality? Here is the question: A contractor estimated that her expenses for a construction project would be between 700,000 dollars and 750,000 dollars. She has already spent 496,000. How much more can she spend and remain within her estimate. After looking around, I learned — Subtract 496,000 from 750,000 to get the most that she can spend and remain within the estimate. Subtract 496,000 from 700,000 to find how much she must spend to come within the minimum estimate range.
