dc.description.abstractThis report demonstrates how the author's internship with the Houston Division of Fluor Engineers, Inc. fulfilled requirements of the Doctor of Engineering program and met the internship objectives. During the sixteen-month period between May 1980 and August 1981, the intern held the position of Engineer with the Cost and Scheduling Department. This position allowed the author to observe and participate in a wide variety of projects in both technical and supervisory capacities, dealing primarily with scheduling and cost control for construction of large chemical process plants. Substantial experience was also obtained from interface with other departments of the company, including accounting, procurement, process engineering, project engineering, finance, and design engineering. Additionally, the intern's position allowed regular contact with project and corporate management, providing exposure to the company's top decision makers. A brief overview of both cost engineering and scheduling engineering is presented to demonstrate the technical aspect of the internship. Finally, several of the author's positions at Fluor are described in order to detail the intern's experience and show specifically how each objective was achieved.en_US
