More and more engineering and technical professionals are making career transitions from product design into project management. This, however, requires formal training and a willingness to learn new skills. All the technical knowledge in the world will not deliver a project successfully, with the necessary level of quality, within cost constraints and on time, without proper project management skills.

Unfortunately, very few engineering professionals have any degree of formal project management training, which results in a great deal of personal stress as well as cost blow-outs and other woes.

To address this problem, the Competency in Project Management for Engineers and Technicians  course from the Engineering Institute of Technology will focus on the critical project-related activities such as work breakdown, scheduling, cost control, and risk management, and show how these can be performed with software to lighten the project manager’s workload. 

You will learn how to introduce appropriate quality management procedures, keep your projects on track using the ‘Earned Value Analysis’ method, exercise an appropriate leadership style and keep team members creative and motivated, and avoid the pitfalls caused by a lack of understanding of the legal issues pertaining to projects.

Aspects such as team leadership and contract law are also covered. All topics will be supplemented with practical exercises focusing primarily on the areas of electrical, electronics, instrumentation, and mechanical engineering. If you wish to do so, you can choose, as a basis for the practical exercises, small projects from your work environment.
