Course Introduction

MSc Engineering Project Management introduces you to the complete project management process; from developing a business case to planning, scheduling and evaluating project outputs. Engineering projects are becoming increasingly complex, being undertaken by multi'disciplinary teams who collaborate to achieve project goals and so often require dedicated and qualified project managers. Project management has become the strategic focus of all successful organisations, and project management skills are considered a valuable attribute by employers.

The course will cover all aspects of engineering project management and is therefore suitable for engineering graduates wishing to develop a career in project management and non'engineers who are expected to manage projects in technology or engineering'related sectors. Individual modules can also be taken by practitioners as part of their CPD.

Course Modules

Introduction to project management; procurement and commercial contract management; projects, organisation and innovation; financial management of engineering projects; quality project management in engineering; risk management and technology evaluation; research methods and professional development; MSc engineering project/dissertation.
