Leading a project to success relies on much more than just engineering skills. Gaining project management expertise will help you keep a project on track, within budget and scope while delivering the intended outcomes. Project performance is also improved through good communication and leadership skills.

This 12-month qualification will ground your existing practice in the discipline of project management. Using your own projects or an engineering case study, you’ll learn how to:

  • develop end-to-end project documentation
  • manage stakeholder expectations
  • deal with project issues and changes
  • review projects and implement lessons learned
  • identify, assess and manage risks
  • manage procurement activities throughout the project lifecycle
  • implement project control mechanisms
  • efficiently report on project status.

By the end of the course, you’ll have the tools and strategies to deliver better project outcomes for your organisation and clients.
