Student Development, Research, Professional Development
The Missouri Consortium for Construction Innovation (MO-CCI) is a partnership between academia and industry that aims at optimizing corporate performance and project life-cycle through an integrated construction engineering and management (CEM) vision directed at student development, research, and professional development.
Improve the quality of educational preparation of students so as to better serve industry needs by having graduates who can hit the ground running as well as provide multiple first-hand forums for member companies towards evaluating and networking with current students.
Conduct applied and practical research tailored to the needs of the industry partners, and the sole needs of Missouri’s construction industry.
Enhance the skills of industry personnel through continuing education workshops that aims to promote efficiency and prepare future company leaders.
As an industry-funded entity, MO-CCI is composed of both the contractor side (i.e. contractors, sub-contractors, suppliers, etc) and the owner side in Missouri. As such, this creates an interactive forum to enhance mutual collaboration on future projects.
MO-CCI organizes an Annual Conference to: (a) report and disseminate results and findings related to all activities in the prior year; (b) provide various seminars by CEM academic and industry experts; and (c) develop plans, strategies, and priorities for future activities. This provides continued loop for improved performance.
