Project Management is studied from a practical perspective.

Students will learn to utilize software that aids in the visualization of the project management process. The emphasis of this special topic in management will be aimed toward an understanding of Project Management for future business leaders and engineers. The course will culminate with a month- long, graded, practical exercise with industry where students will be organized into teams or as individual developers and sent to explore all aspects of a problem, conduct a project initiation workshop, and then present a project management plan to the leadership of that participating industry.
