Project Scheduling

Major infrastructure projects involve thousands of people coming together to complete a set of activities in a specific order. This messy and complicated to manage, and working for a contractor, a client is paying your company a fixed fee to ensure all these activities are completed in a specified time period. If the works are not complete in this period, your company may be up for hundreds of thousands if not millions of dollars in delay charges.

This course is designed for junior engineers entering the construction industry and will teach you the tools and techniques construction management professionals use to ensure their projects finish on time. Learn the purpose and value of construction scheduling, how to develop, monitor, and control the project schedule, and the different types of schedules used on construction projects. The course is practical, simple, and easy to follow with practice activities to reinforce everything you learn during the course.

Often engineering at university focuses on the technical aspects however many engineers will find the skills needed to excel at their jobs are project management based. This course covers one of the key project management skills used by engineers; procurement. It will provide you a context as to what procurement is and why it's important, and go through how procurement is conducted on a project.
