In mid-April, students of the CEE 1.011 Project Evaluation and Management course took to the field in an unprecedented way – they journeyed to the building site of MIT.nano to see, firsthand, the decision-making that goes into large-scale construction and transportation endeavors. Organized by CEE Professor Joseph Sussman, the field trip was executed in an effort to give the students a glimpse into a real-world, complex construction project. “I tell students: ‘You saw the PowerPoint in class, now put on a hard hat and reflective vest and go where things are happening to a get a real idea of how projects work,’” said Sussman. The construction of MIT.nano, the Institute’s planned nanoscale-research center, is located in the heart of campus. For the article, please see here.
