About the Course

Project Management: Foundations and Initiation provides students the foundational knowledge of how engineering projects are managed and initiated. Project managers are responsible for project scope, stakeholder management, effective communication, and team leadership. In this course, you will develop introductory skills needed to manage traditional engineering projects, along with tools needed to engage stakeholders and build diverse teams. This course can be taken for academic credit as part of CU Boulder’s Master of Engineering in Engineering Management (ME-EM) degree offered on the Coursera platform. The ME-EM is designed to help engineers, scientists, and technical professionals move into leadership and management roles in the engineering and technical sectors. With performance-based admissions and no application process, the ME-EM is ideal for individuals with a broad range of undergraduate education and/or professional experience.

Great info. Only suggestions would be to have 1080p+ resolution for videos and a dark mode for easier viewing late night studying. Thank you,

Really great EM-PM introduction course for people moving up and into project management and leadership roles. A broad overview of PM process and topics and provides the necessary common terminology to speak with others about PM.

Easy to follow course. Good venue to learn about project management. The lecture though is repetitive. The main points in each lecture keep getting repeated over and over under multiple narrative and videos, and I don't get the point of watching other people's youtube video. Why can't the professor craft a more detailed lecture and slides?
