Programa Especializado - Managing Major Engineering Projects

Develop a Career in Engineering Project Management. Master the skills required to lead large engineering projects

Sobre este Programa Especializado

Major engineering projects can positively affect the lives of many people and have long-lasting impact on the economy. They are also characterized by vast complexity and carry risks. Major projects often run over schedule, come in over budget and fail to deliver as many benefits as expected. Throughout our three courses, you will develop your project management skills in engineering which will prepare you to deliver large engineering projects. The specialization is the first step towards earning degree credit from the University of Leeds. Learners who successfully complete the Specialization will be able to apply to the enhanced, for-credit Capstone project which will run as a private course on Coursera. Credit earned by successfully completing the Capstone project can be used directly towards our online MSc in Engineering Management and as evidence of accredited postgraduate study. Successful applicants to the Capstone project will get the chance develop their skills further through practical research supported by a dedicated instructor in global classroom sessions and access to the University of Leeds online library catalog which contains over ninety thousand electronic resources to help you complete the online assessments.
