In addition to pre-structured, traditional classroom-taught courses, Prof. Skibniewski conducted individually tailored, directed study coursework (CE 597 and CE 697 with variable course names) with individual students at Purdue University. Topics addressed in this fashion focused on highly specialized current research areas such as automated construction systems design and analysis, expert systems prototype development, reliability and risk analysis in construction, advanced technology transfer, neural networks and machine learning applications to construction engineering, and international construction.

In addition to working with graduate students at the M.S. and Ph.D. level, from time to time Prof. Skibniewski engages in his research undergraduate students as well. The most recent example (2005) of this activity is mentoring of a Purdue University undergraduate student in civil engineering (S. Steven) as part of the Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) program supported by the National Science Foundation.
