Project Management for High Tech Systems

Length: Approximately eight hours.


Designed for both public and private sector project managers, this course emphasizes the project management issues associated with the implementation of technology-intensive transportation projects. Following an introduction to the project management context (fundamental principles, basic knowledge and skill areas, role of the project manager), the discussion takes the student through all phases of the project (definition, planning, design, and execution). The course covers the types of project management tools available for transportation systems projects and the techniques related with system acquisition. Software testing and evaluation are discussed at length.

This course is part of the core Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) curriculum established by the ITS Professional Capacity Building (PCB) program. For more information, click here.
