Technical engineering skills are the foundation of engineering solutions, but they are no use if they are not applied in efficient and effective ways. Successful engineering projects and ventures require management. This course identifies the different management activities involved and develops the skills necessary for managing technology projects. Professional engineers also need to be able to enhance their technical knowledge with essential workplace skills and a wider understanding of current societal issues if they are to be successful in the global workplace. This course aims to improve your understanding of what it means to be a professional engineer. It also aims to give you an introduction to the skills to evaluate technical solutions from ethical, sustainable and economic points of view.
