Edward Jaselskis

E.I. Clancy Distinguished Professor

Edward Jaselskis is the Jimmy D. Clark Distinguished Professor in the Department of Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering at North Carolina State University.  He was educated at the University of Illinois, receiving a BS in general engineering in 1980, an SM in civil engineering (emphasis in construction engineering and project management) from MIT in 1982, and a PhD in civil engineering (emphasis in construction engineering and project management) from the University of Texas-Austin in 1988.  Between the period of his MS and PhD studies, he worked for ExxonMobil as a cost and schedule engineer in New Jersey and field engineer on an open pit coal mine project in Colombia, South America.  He has also worked for Perkins and Will, an architectural engineering firm, as an electrical designer and Bechtel, international construction company, as a civil field engineer.

Jaselskis has served as a program director for the National Science Foundation in the area of information technology and infrastructure systems and director for the Engineering Policy and Leadership Institute and professor-in-charge of the construction program at Iowa State University.

Jaselskis is a registered professional engineer in the State of Iowa and has memberships in several organizations (American Society of Civil Engineering, Construction Institute, Transportation Research Board, American Society for Engineering Education, Sigma Xi, and National Society of Professional Engineers).  In addition, he is a member of the Strategic Planning Committee for the Construction Industry Institute.  He is also a member of the National Academy of Construction.

Prior to joining NC State, Dr. Jaselskis received his B.S. in engineering from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1980, his M.S. in civil engineering from Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1982, and his Ph.D. in civil engineering from The University of Texas at Austin in 1988.

Research Interests:

Dr. Jaselskis is interested in determinants of construction project success and innovative construction technologies for improving jobsite productivity. He has conducted research in the areas of construction project success and advanced information technologies with funding provided by federal (National Cooperative Highway Research Program and National Science Foundation), state (Iowa DOT), and industrial sponsors (Weitz, Western Summit, and the Construction Industry Institute. He is currently working on the use of RFID technology to provide continuous tracking of personnel on a construction site and investigating the determinants of construction project success on complex projects.  He is also working on a Construction Industry Institute project to improve project progress and performance assessment.
