As most engineering works have a clear purpose and stipulated beginning and end times, they are regarded as 'projects'. Ensuring an engineering project reaches fulfilment within its required constraints is the process of engineering project management. In this course the concepts, processes and tools of advanced engineering project management are explored. Students are guided through the historical background of project management, the project management environment, the elements of the project life cycle, the projects management knowledge areas, the consideration of professional issues in the project management process and program management. The course concludes with a discussion of specialised and emerging project management topics, designed to improve project management outcomes.
