Accelerate your Career with a Master of Engineering in Design and Manufacturing
Advanced Project Management builds from the basic tools of project management to introduce participants to the reality of managing projects within the context of engineering organizations that can be complex, where multiple projects may be in place, where membership is drawn from a variety of specialization's and individual differences abound and where team-based functioning is the norm. The course will address issues such as management of multiple projects, individual differences, project leadership, working in teams, and change management. Case studies of managed projects will be used in the course.
Course Leader: To be confirmed
Project management (PM) has evolved from being an accidental job title into a chosen profession for many. Even if one chooses to follow a strictly technical career path, an engineer will almost certainly be working on projects, and this course can help an individual understand that context. Employers very much value competence in project management. This course covers most of the knowledge areas and processes of the globally recognized PM Body of Knowledge: integration, scope, cost, time, risk, human resources, stakeholders, communications, quality and procurement management.
At the end of the course, each participant should be able to:
The course takes a practical, applied approach to PM, with large and small group discussions, individual and team assignments. Activities includes team papers and presentations on “lessons learned” from actual international and domestic projects, and case study discussions. For those that have already taken a course in PM, Module 1 could be seen as a review. Advanced topics are covered in Module 2.
