Engineering project management is a specialty that covers the activities related to the creative work undertaken on a systemic basis. It’s also about drawing on existing knowledge gained from research or practical experience, which helps the engineering project manager produce new materials, install new processes or improve those already produced or installed.
Engineering project managers have diverse responsibilities such as meeting with stakeholders, project engineers and technical tradesmen to brief project planning, budgeting and resource management efforts. They are also generally responsible for the status of project execution and deliverables to facilitate the identification of existing or new work needed to accomplish the project goals and objectives.
This position also demands an excellent communicator who must oversee costs, schedules and technical performance. As documents are produced at each stage of a project, it’s the engineering project manager’s job to ensure that they conform to regulatory, statutory, sponsor and stakeholder requirements.
Succinctly put, scope, time, and cost management are at the heart of successful project management.
Needless to say, the engineering project manager wears a lot of hats, which translates into a position in much demand with an average salary of $108,328 per year in the United States.
The engineering project manager follows set principles to accomplish all the work necessary to complete a project. One such principle is framework, as in having standard operating procedures in place. While every project is different, the basics are more or less the same every time. More importantly, projects follow the same standardized process from conception through close-out.
A solid framework can save engineering project managers mental energy and time from not having to re-create wheels on activities or tasks that happen over and over.

–Personalization. Developers learn best when the course materials are relevant to them. That’s why for the past 30 years we have been customizing every learning solution we deliver to the backgrounds of the students, their roles, the project they are working on, as well as the development and production platforms they use.
–Relevancy. Other companies, with their off-the-shelf commodity training classes, are focused on what they offer — not what your team needs. Our learning solutions are focused on your people, project and productivity goals. When you work with Develop Intelligence, it’s all about you.
–Ratings tabulated from student feedback post-course evaluations show an amazing 98 percent satisfaction score.
–Reasonably priced classes taught by the best trainers is the reason all kinds of organizations from Fortune 500 companies to government’s most important agencies return for updates in courses and hands-on workshops
