Outline and Purpose of the Course In this course, students will apply the engineering know-how and the skills of management, and group leadership which they learned in the course of Project Management in Engineering to build and carry out a virtual inter-engineering project. This course provides a forum where students' team-plan based on ideas and theories, decision making, and leadership should produce realistic engineering project outcomes. The course consists of intensive group work, presentations, and a few intermediate discussions. A final report will be required.
Course Goals This course prepares engineering students to work with other engineers within a large international engineering project. In particular this course will focus on leadership and management of projects along with applied engineering skills where the students learn various compromises, co-operation, responsibility, and ethics.
