This course looks at the main theories of project management with particular reference to systems and integrating theories, to enable those in general and project management to use these methods to achieve complex organisational and technical goals.

If you are a graduate working in aerospace project organisations, who need to acquire techniques for managing complex work programmes, you should consider attending. It may also be suitable if you are a manager who needs to broaden your knowledge of modern team management systems.

By completing the optional course assessment, this course can contribute towards one or more of the Awards within our Engineering Capability Development Framework. This framework of engineering modules gives participants the opportunity to take a flexible route towards a named Postgraduate Award, such as MSc Aerospace, MSc Professional Engineering, or MSc Engineering Management.

Careers / Further study

Engineering Project Management can be taken as a stand-alone short professional course, or used to build up to a named postgraduate qualification (PG Certificate, PG Diploma or Masters) within our Engineering Capability Development Framework. For a full list of short courses please see our Engineering and Aerospace course list.

Professional accreditation

This course contributes towards the MSc Aerospace Programme, which is accredited by the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAS) and the Institute of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE). Both professional bodies also endorse the other professional engineering courses that we offer.

Our Engineering courses can also contribute to your portfolio of evidence for Chartered Engineering registration. Please refer to the Benefits of Professional Study for more information.
