  • Schulich-Lassonde Certificate in Project Management for Engineers

    The ability to manage projects is a core competency for engineers and technologists.

    While managing projects has always been an essential part of large-scale, civil engineering projects, it is increasingly required with smaller projects such as designing products, implementing new delivery systems or integrating technologies. For engineers, understanding project management practices allows them to enhance their performance, improve communications and increase their impact, no matter what size the task.

    The Schulich-Lassonde Professional Certificate in Project Management for Engineers is a nine-day course designed by the Lassonde School of Engineering and the Schulich ExecEd at York University. It is based on Schulich ExecEd’s highly regarded Masters Certificate in Project Management, but designed specifically for engineers and technologists.

    The tools and techniques shared in the course will help technology entrepreneurs, project managers, participants and technology leaders develop the knowledge and skills they need to ensure that small and large projects are delivered on time, on budget and in line with stakeholder expectations.

    This joint Lassonde/Schulich ExecEd program will expose participants to real-life challenges and issues involved in managing projects in an immersive and engaging experiential learning environment led by industry experts.
