Applied Project Management

Well-run projects depend entirely on the foundation laid in the initial planning stages, care and precision in project organization, and excellent teamwork. This course offers a detailed look at the characteristics of projects and a hands-on team simulation of the project planning and management process.

This course covers the explanation of various project phases according to the PMI standard (Project Management Institute), major and detailed tasks. It will deal with task assignment and resource allocation, budgeting, tracking, and scheduling techniques as well as with project leadership and team processes. The course will give students hands-on experiences in project management, as students have to run a project on their own in teams over the semester.
