Engineering Project Management Training by Tonex

Engineering Creativity & Innovation Workshop Training by Tonex

An engineering project manager gets paid well because of the large skill set required and immense responsibilities that often result in a company’s bottom line success or failure.

The engineering project manager is one of the most sought after positions in the United States with the average salary around $108,328 per year.

The pay is big because the position is demanding. Engineering project management is a profession that requires technical systemic training along with the ability to manage people, budgets and processes. On top of all that, an engineering project manager needs to have excellent communication skills because of the array of stakeholders normally involved in larger projects.

The Project Management Institute defines project management as the application of tools, techniques, knowledge and skills to the activities within a project in order to fulfill requirements.

The Project Management Institute divides project management into five steps: initiating, planning, executing, monitoring and controlling, and closing. The knowledge that project managers must apply during the process falls into the following categories: integration, scope, time, cost, quality, procurement, human resources, communications, risk management and stakeholder management.

The engineering project manager has a very challenging role at staying focused on the goal of a unique project, the resources required to complete it, and the schedule of execution.

The management side of engineering project management requires considerable time overseeing the activities of employees and team members across organizations. For example, a project that involves creating new software requires a project manager to work with multiple staff members across the finance, marketing, software development, and customer-support departments.

And, organizational skills must also be razor sharp. Project managers are responsible for overseeing and managing a variety of activities within a project, including production, operations, quality assurance and testing. Organization and attention to detail are critical competencies to the success of an engineering project manager.

Engineering Project Management Training Course by Tonex

Engineering project management training helps you manage your project and enhance your project results, and it enables you to manage several other tasks at the same time.

Engineering project management training allows you to recognize the skills you need for the project management, including the ones you already have and need to improve and those you need to develop. You will learn how to execute the step-by-step process to plan, implement and assess each project; create policies for making other people capable and interacting with them on their progress; and how to navigate a project around shortage of resources, wrong direction, and office strategies.

Engineering project management training will provide you with the techniques required for managing engineering projects in an understandable format that passes beyond the conventional idea of developing schedule and project planning, by investigating various aspects of PM processes. You will receive in-depth and comprehensive knowledge in the crucial principles of Project Management.

Engineering project management training provides you with the opportunity of experiencing what you are taught with an example project. Half of this training belongs to practical exercises including real-world case studies, group activities, and hands-on workshops.
