Goal of the course
Students perform an engineering economic analysis, meaning that they quantify expected costa and benefits for a given engineering project (infrastructure project, ICT project)
Bachelor or master student, from a specific degree, multidisciplinary group, different languages, ...
1st Master in Engineering (burgerlijk ingenieur), divers disciplines (IEOR, computer science, electrical engineering, civil engineering, mechanical engineering, ...)
Input at the start
Briefing document describing the engineering project at hand. + Time to sit discuss and answer questions from the student several times throughout the semester (can be short video calls or telephone calls)
A report describing the economic analysis of the engineering project at hand, based on the assumptions discussed with the external organisation. Most probably also a sensitivity analysis is included.
study the impact of the potential use of location sensors in order to improve the operations (reduce the amount of material lost or misplaced) on a construction site
