The Project Management program at Northwestern University is designed to prepare technically qualified individuals for leadership roles in the construction, operation, and management of major civil and environmental engineering projects.


This part- or full-time Project Management program at Northwestern University combines education in essential concepts of civil and architectural engineering design with the functional concepts of business management and behavioral science to produce a well-rounded and capable leader. It is designed for early- to mid-level engineers and architects, and is largely taught by practicing professionals who bring a wealth of outside experience, case studies, and present-day challenges from this constantly evolving field straight to the classroom.

Unique Program Features

Whereas many MS programs focus on the technical aspects of civil and architectural engineering design and construction, the MPM program encourages students to build on their technical backgrounds by emphasizing the practical business and management perspectives needed to effectively synthesize these operations. Graduates of the MPM program are well equipped to take a more high-level view of a project and plan, coordinate, control, and evaluate the activities of diverse specialists within a project framework.
