Project management roles are predicted to increase by more than 13.4 million by 2020. Organizations ranging from engineering firms to business services are increasingly required to quickly implement new projects given the pace of globalization and innovation.
Project management uses cross-functional teams to assist in the process of planning, organizing, securing, leading, delegating and controlling of resources to achieve specific goals for a finite objective.
The master's degree in project management is offered through the KU School of Engineering's Project Management Department. It prepares current and future project managers with the skills and knowledge to successfully bridge the fields of engineering, technology, people and business. Coursework is completed entirely at the KU Edwards Campus with accommodations made for those needing to travel for work. Because of the busy schedules and frequent travel that many working professionals juggle, this program has online and distance learning options.
This program has a Master of Science and a Master of Engineering track. Prospective students will work with the program coordinator to determine which track to pursue.
Graduates will master the skills necessary to ensure that key issues of cost, time, quality, and client satisfaction are met. Theory and practical application are stressed and courses are taught using terminology and techniques consistent with the Project Management Institute (PMI).
