Educational project

This specializing master course aims to give the main tools of project management to both engineers and architects. Nowadays it is getting more and more important to know how any project should be managed from its inception to its end, in order to optimize costs and to get forward according to a predefined schedule. During this specializing master the students will be introduced to the theory of project management, of investment valuation, and financial accounting. They will receive all the information needed to obtain the PMI (Project Management Institute) certifications and the IPMA (International Project Management Association) certifications. They will receive all the information needed to become a Lean Green Belt Project Leader. And all the information needed to become an accredited project manager in Italy with Accredia. Specific knowledge about digitization of the construction industry and about data analysis will be provided, and the students will learn how to use a powerful tool like Matlab for data management. The construction industry generates a huge amount of data which until now have been mostly wasted. The ability to collect those data, to store them, to interpret and to use them efficiently will lead in the future to major competitive advantages. A whole unit is about soft skills, those interpersonal attitudes and capabilities that make the difference between a good project manager and a mediocre one. In a world where automation is becoming the norm, the abilities to deal with people, to manage relationships, to communicate well and to lead are becoming more and more relevant, abilities that by their very nature won┬┐t be replicated by machines for still a very long time to come.Besides all these PM tools, specific knowledge about contract, claim and delay management will be provided to the students. The need for technicians (engineers and/or architects) who become skilled in managing contracts and claims, and who can perform a delay analysis in accordance with established international standards is ever more urgent among the most important general contractors in Italy and abroad.
