Unit Name: Engineering Project Management

Description: The students who successfully complete this course will have basic knowledge of the project management framework and knowledge areas in the standards for management of a project. Students will develop and demonstrate the knowledge required for successful project evaluation and selection, initiation and planning, project execution, monitoring and controlling and project closeout. Graduates will develop a project plan, schedule, budget, and assess project risks. They will evaluate project performance using earned value management techniques. Graduates will become an effective member of a project team and to learn to manage projects by completing a group project. Graduates will demonstrate a thorough understanding of the basics of project management including the importance and interrelationship of all the components.

Learning Target Outcomes: On successful completion of this course, the student should be able to; 1. Demonstrate knowledge of the societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to the engineering technician practice and solutions to well-defined engineering problems. 2. Apply established risk management strategies to minimize the likelihood of significant consequences (such as injury or loss of life, major environmental damage, or significant economic loss) occurring in the event of failure. 3. Understand and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of technician practice. 4. Understand management principles and contribute constructively to team decision-making, earning the trust and confidence of other team members. 5. Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of engineering management principles and apply these to one’s work, as a member or leader in a technical team and to manage projects in multidisciplinary environments. 6. Comprehend how legislative, regulatory, contract law, other common law and professional obligations are applied, apply basic project management tools to the planning and execution of practical project work, and compare engineering standards and codes of practice relevant to project management. 7. Evaluate the sustainability of the project and apply engineering management principles to demonstrate, communicate, comprehend and produce effective design documentation including reports and presentations.
