Partnership with Morgan State University
DFI has had the opportunity to partner with Morgan State University in the Undergraduate Program in Construction Management. Walter Edward Dukes, Ph.D., Program Director, has been instrumental in fostering collaboration between industry professionals and students. DFI’s association with Morgan State University was formed by participation in the Baltimore Chapter of CMAA (Construction Management Association of America)
DFI has provided credit instruction in both classroom settings and on active construction sites toward the goal of current construction management and inspection industry exposure. Both students and DFI benefit by the sharing of information on new technologies and techniques. Visit the Morgan State University Undergraduate Program in Construction Management page for more information.
