A graduate of Roseville High School and Macomb Community College, transfer student Matt Gudenau has committed his research to focus on design and construction to minimize building waste. Faculty mentor, Professor Ben Ilozor recognizes the importance of the topic to the field of construction management from both a cost-saving and environmentally-friendly perspective.
Gudenau is a member of Eastern Construction, a construction management student organization here at EMU. His post-degree goal is to build his experience by working with a major construction firm and then operate his own company. To this end, he plans to participate in a summer on-the-job internship that will allow him to put his Symposium research into practice.
