Course overview

The objectives of this module is to enable students to learn to:
• analyse different methodologies, concepts and structures of project management
• initiate, plan and manage projects using appropriate Project Management software.

Students will learn the value of methodology and organization of work as a project, and about the identification of different project roles and responsibilities.

This module is taught in the fourth semester of this study programme, when students have already acquired most of the skills needed for their future jobs, and it gives them the tools for planning and executing their future projects.

It is important for students to take this module to understand the value of good project management and get insight into systematic and efficient access to the resources of space, time, work force and finance. The students will therefore be able to select and recommend processes and organize them according to project requirements, to apply software management and reporting, which will contribute to the overall skillset for their future employment.
