The course equips students with theoretical backgrounds and practical project management tools aiming at developing project management skills.
This course aims to familiarize students with
• The project management (PM) concepts and tools for organizing, planning, and controlling projects (PERT, Gantt, critical path, critical chain and DSM matrixes) using the MS Project, and DSM software.
• The critical role of work breakdown structures and networks in planning and scheduling project and management of multi-project environment and multitasking.
• Managerial, cultural, and social aspects of PM and the importance of the organization’s strategy during the project selection.
• How to reliably estimate the status of projects and how to finance of technology development projects.


This course covers the fundamental concepts and applied techniques for cost effective management of both long-term development programs and short-term projects. The content deals with planning, scheduling, organizing, and controlling projects. The course uses cases from a wide variety of industries. Project management principles and methodology are provided with special focus on planning, controlling, and managing projects to successful completion. After successfully completing this course, the student will be able to:
