This Engineering Project Management course at Coventry University aims to respond to the ongoing trend for project-based work within engineering organisations, and the fact that projects are becoming extensively and increasingly technically complex. It is designed to help prepare you to manage and lead organisational change through projects and become effective change agents. We take a high level, critical and evaluative view of project management, providing you with an opportunity to understand planning, monitoring, and controlling techniques required to deliver a very successful project.

  • We focus on projects involving major changes and complexities, such as issues related to new products and services, new plant, equipment, new operating systems, and look at how they can affect the lives of people both inside and outside the organisation.
  • Our activity-led learning approach means that you should have opportunities to link your learning of business management theory to real-life project practices, drawing from actual case studies, taking part in project simulations, working in teams and applied work to get a greater understanding of the different ways that project management can significantly improve profitability and competitiveness.
  • Furthermore, our current industrial and strategic partnerships could provide industrial project opportunities and industry visits (subject to availability and additional costs may apply) , which have previously included companies such as Rolls Royce, Prodrive, Jaguar Land Rover, DHL, Mini in the UK to mention but a few.
