This Project Management for Engineering Professionals Specialization is designed as an introduction to Project Management. It is targeted for engineers who are interested in improving their project management skills in a new leadership position or in advance of their first leadership position. As part of the Specialization, you will prepare key Project Execution Plan documents based on available templates. Finally, the course is a key step toward achieving the three part Rice Certificate in Engineering Management and Leadership. These added achievements will help to differentiate you from your peers, provide valuable and practical knowledge and position you for future success.
