What is Project Management of Complex Systems (SEPM 6102)?

A project is a temporary endeavor undertaken to create a unique product or service. Project management is the application of knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques accomplished through five linked processes for initiating, planning, executing, controlling, and closing work to meet a set of defined requirements. This project-based module exposes students to tools and techniques useful for the effective management of systems engineering projects.

Tools and techniques for project goal and scope definition,task identification and compilation in a work breakdown structure, time and cost estimations, project planning, project balanced scorecard, project knowledge map, risk assessment, project monitoring and control, and project closure are presented. The concepts of project fast-tracking and project recovery are also introduced.

The courses are organized as intensive one-week courses each with 5 days of lectures.  During this week, the lectures last from 0830 to 1630 each day. The courses are a mixture of lectures and work in groups.  Masterstudents and others taking courses for credit will work on a written assignment which is due 10 weeks after the end of the course.  A completed course with approved written assignment will give 7.5 studypoints.
