Continuum of engagement

In the Del E. Webb School of Construction, we want to give industry professionals and alumni a clear, flexible and customizable pathway to engage with us.

Check out all of the ways you can enrich the education of the future professionals in the construction industry!

— Work with students

K-10 outreach

We offer short modules, taught by our faculty, students, and alumni that are of interest to all grade levels. These modules are designed to teach basic concepts as well as specifics about the construction and engineering community and can serve as interest builders in STEM fields. Please contact us if you’re interested in offering a course to K-10 students.

High school recruits (Juniors & Seniors)

We offer the same type of courses to 11th and 12th graders as we do K-10 students; however, we see these courses as having a dual purpose of recruiting to the Del E. Webb School of Construction.

Underclassmen

Contact with our underclassmen helps us with retention. Contact with nonmajor underclassmen can help us recruit them into the construction industry. Sophomores can use advice about the various sectors of our industry in which to pursue an internship.

In residence!

Come be part of our faculty, full time! We often have opportunities for folks to come teach and collaborate with us for a semester or a year at a time. These scholars often teach a few classes each semester and assist faculty with their industry advancing cutting edge research. Occasionally these opportunities are good experiences for industry professionals to transition into academics as a second career.

Teach a C session

We are constantly looking for industry partners to teach as Faculty Associates (sometimes called Adjunct Professors) to help us educate our students in construction and related topics. It’s an outstanding opportunity to pass on your knowledge to future construction professionals. A C session is a traditional semester long course; typically 15 weeks long, meeting for 3 hours a week.

Teach an intensive session (45 hours)

Teach a C session – We are constantly looking for industry partners to teach as Faculty Associates (sometimes called Adjunct Professors) to help us educate our students in construction and related topics. It’s an outstanding opportunity to pass on your knowledge to future construction professionals. An intensive session covers 45 hours. This atypical format can be used to cover special topics where an instructor isn’t available for a full semester.

Lead a special project course (1, 2, 3 credits)

Completed a major project that might be of interest for students? Can that project be turned into an interesting student project? We can work with you to create a special project course to instruct and give students hands on experience with a similar project. For example, an alumni completed a project that had a particularly complicated process for buying out the subcontractors; it was turned into a very popular construction elective course “Subcontractor Selection Process.”

Teach multiple days

 Some more complicated industry oriented courses are taught over multiple days. For example, our Certified Construction Program Manager course, which leads to the CCPM designation, is taught by 2 – 4 instructors over 40 hours.

Teach a single lecture

Come guest lecture to our students! Think of a situation where you used something you learned in school, or didn’t learn in school, and come teach that something to our students! Look at our course offerings and contact the professor who is currently teaching that course to see about availability. Not all courses have flexibility to allow for guest speakers, but most do.

Lead a lecture series

Come lead a series of lectures about a certain topic. These lecture series can be open to both students and the industry. Opportunities for lecture series is limited, as students generally don’t have time for multiple lecture series.

Create a case study (artifacts, knowledge)

Students and Professors love to tie their base knowledge and skills to a particular project, example, or thing. If you have a specific project, example, or thing that students can interact with, let us know! We can work with you to create a case study for use in one of our courses. Students learn better when they encounter real world scenarios; what better way than to use one from our alumni or industry partners!

Attend Training (in-person, online)

Through our OSHA Education Center we offer a variety of safety and other general outreach courses for industry professionals. In addition to the OSHA numbered courses, we offer short courses in cutting edge technology, and can often accommodate requests for specific topics. Usually courses are offered on-campus in our state of the art classrooms; however, we have taught our courses around the country at both conferences and at specific companies.
