Engineering Project Management Training Course Description

Engineering Creativity & Innovation Workshop Training by Tonex

Engineering project management training course provides principals and practices of modern project management related to engineering projects. In general, project management is defined as precisely planning, organizing, inspiring, and controlling human resources, budget, time, peers and superiors, vendors, and customers to accomplish specific goals while meeting certain desired standards and criteria. Such definition is valid for managing projects in all different fields including various types of engineering projects.

An engineering project is a temporary job defined to generate a specific device, or provide a service, or construct a building or highway, or any other engineering task which has a definite start and ending stage, limited by time, budget, and deliverables, undertaken to accomplish certain goals and milestones. As Engineering projects carry a temporary nature, against permanent nature of engineering operations or business, managing of such is often quite different from managing permanent engineering jobs which results in demanding for development of some unique, specific technical and management skills and strategies.

The engineering project management training course helps you develop these skills and learn the effective strategies, as you are required to do for the specific project you are going to manage. Engineering project management training course encompasses topics relate to project concept selection, development planning, and engineering design; procurement; construction activities; schedule and cost management; risk management; resources (people and materials) management; and etc. Such training assists you, as the project manager, to make the best possible decisions within available resources and budget. Engineering project management training course also teaches you what the six project management phases require. You will learn how to use key project management knowledge areas and project control. Through engineering project management training course you will learn how project management process groups relate to one another, how execution plans are used to integrate the work effort, what tools are available for the project manager to use, what information will be generated, and what that information means.
