About this Course

Scope, Time, and Cost Management is the second course in the Engineering Management Certificate Part 3: Project Management Specialization. The goal of this course is to give students the tools to develop a project plan. Students will learn to create a scope statement, build a Work Breakdown Structure (WBS), prepare a cost estimate, build a project budget, create a basic scheduling network and critical path along with basic project controls and progress measurement. Each week the student will create one of these key documents for our pre-determined case.
