Lead Faculty: Dr Shekar Viswanathan

Course Description

Focus on the application of application of engineering processes learned through this program. Working in teams or as individuals under the guidance of their assigned faculty advisor, students select a research topic, and gather data. The duration of this course is one month. This is the first part of two course series that each student has to complete sequentially. Grading is H, S, or U only.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:

Project Management Concentration:

  • Evaluate critically a given project for its success and/or failure based on concepts learned.
  • Write a Masters level research project/thesis based on the findings that include all essential elements of a good project management engineering system.
  • Define a specific research problem and/or a business study closely related to project management engineering or safety/security engineering or industrial engineering
  • Show a comprehensive literature review relating to the study and methods used in the project
  • Identify sources of data for the project analysis and gather and analyze relevant data
  • Show timelines and key milestones for execution and completion of project activities
