16.0 Continuing Education Units (CEUs)

This course addresses the fundamental principles of project management, and the tools and techniques at our disposal to help achieve our goals. These principles, largely developed and tested on engineering projects, are being successfully applied to projects of all sizes and types within the business world. Topics covered include: project definition and start up; planning, scheduling and estimating; approval process, including testing for alternatives; project information and control systems; resource selection and allocation, implementation; post-project evaluation; project management as a career; skills and knowledge required by professionals, including decision-making and resource allocation appropriate to project phases; integration with other disciplines, including accounting and finance.
