Kansas University Continuing Education and Black & Veatch Corp. are developing courses in engineering management for Black & Veatch's energy business professionals - courses that eventually will reach all of the company's more than 90 offices worldwide.
Courses will include project management, construction management, marketing and sales, and finance and accounting. The engineering management program at the KU Edwards Campus in Overland Park and KU schools of engineering and journalism have collaborated on the courses and will provide instructors.
The program will offer live instruction at Black & Veatch's Overland Park location, to be transmitted electronically to Black & Veatch regional offices in Ann Arbor, Mich., and Houston, allowing employees to interact with KU instructors. Future classes will be available to all global offices of Black & Veatch's energy business.
