He earned his BS in Civil Engineering from UC Davis in 2017. He is an estimating professional with Kaiser in-house general contractor, National Facilities Services – Cost Engineering Group.

“We are excited to award Moises this scholarship for the Advanced Studies in Estimating and integrated Cost Management certificate program. He is a hard-working, intelligent young man, and I truly believe the sky is the limit for Moises. The Advanced Studies program will help put Moises’ career in estimating the fast-track to success,” said Paul Martin, Managing Director at i4Ci.
Mr. Martin and Hung Nguyen, Ph.D., PMP are the directors at i4Ci; they are working exclusively with UC Davis – CPE to develop the Advanced Studies in Estimating and integrated Cost Management certificate program, which launches with its first cohort on Monday, October 26, 2020.
