School of Engineering announces new program
in technical project management

This fall, The Citadel School of Engineering through the College of Graduate and Professional Studies will offer a new non-degree graduate certificate program in technical project management.

The certification series consists of four graduate courses, at three credit hours each, and focuses on broadening the knowledge, skills and abilities of today's technical project managers.

Engineering School Dean Dennis Fallon said the program was designed with input from industry leaders and emphasizes technology, collaboration and leadership.

"As leaders, project managers are trying to develop themselves professionally in a business world filled with never-ending challenges," Fallon said. "Preparing for these challenges should be part of every manager's professional development plan."

Conducted in a practical business environment, the courses use the Project Management Institute Guidebook to the Project Management Body of Knowledge as the primary text, with industry-related assignments as the standard teaching methods. Beginning in fall 2005, students will be able to take the pre-requisite course in the series, ENGR 650-Overview of Technical Project Management.

All students must meet graduate school admission requirements and program admission requirements, including technical project management experience. Applications should be submitted before Aug. 1, 2005. For more information email Keith Plemmons, assistant professor of civil and environmental engineering or call (843) 453-7677.

Additional information about graduate school admission requirements can be found on the College of Graduate and Professional Studies web site. Information about the program and admission requirements can be found at the School of Engineering.
