Project Management

 

This course aims to provide students the background of Project Management in order to bring about the successful completion of specific project goals and objectives. Familiarizing with the basic principles of project management is a vital ability for all employees in the energy and financial sector. Specifically, in the framework of the module the following disciplines will be thoroughly assessed; planning, organizing, securing and managing resources. Moreover, students will be guided into primary challenges of project management, i.e. meeting the project’s specific goals under project constraints. Scope, time, and budget present such typical constraints. Additionally, techniques towards optimizing the allocation and integration of inputs (e.g. capital, equipment, etc.) necessary to meet pre-defined objectives will be assessed. Emphasis will be also given on managing the project team, which is considered a critical parameter for any project’s success.
