Industry has voiced the need for gap reduction in the experiential and theoretical learning that exists in today’s construction engineering curriculum. Student success is a direct reflection of the priority in the external stakeholders that will be discussed in this paper. Creation of a course that could reduce the gap is the first step in this process to align courses, instructor strengths, and industry needs, while meeting and/or exceeding the expectations of the student. The main objective of this research is to provide solid foundations of construction core courses by discussing importance and needs of Means and Methods in engineering education. The proposed course curriculum would contribute to provide an opportunity to lead by example as well as to provide a model for training instructors in content delivery – promote enduring outcome by using application-based delivery.
