Many engineering professionals tend to take on a role which encompasses management (and leadership) tasks at some stage of their career despite enjoying the technical aspects of their career.
All the technical knowledge in the world will not deliver a project successfully, i.e. with the required level of quality, within cost constraints and on time. Unfortunately very few engineering professionals have any degree of formal management training, which results in a great deal of personal stress as well as cost blow-outs and other woes.
The lack of training often applies to the 'people skills' required for effective leadership as well. Critical project related activities such as work breakdown, scheduling, cost control and risk management, are important to understand. The 'soft' (but equally important) aspects such as team leadership and contract law are also critical.
The Engineering Institute of Technology (EIT) School of Engineering Management thus focuses on project management with a interest in time, cost and risk management.
Engineering management courses include:
Vocational Graduate Diploma of Project Management in Industrial Automation
Master of Business and Project Management in Industrial Automation
Professional Certificate of Competency in Project Management for Engineers and Technicians
