Our General Approach towards Research

Construction engineering and management research topics are continually being explored to meet up with the evolving industry need. The goal of the continuous exploration is to find new ways to improve the construction process and make construction sites safer. The research topics investigated to date by the CII-Lab are intended to meet these goals. However, there are many more good ideas out there, and we value your input.
