Program Overview

Our tailored curriculum has been collaboratively designed and developed by uOttawa’s Faculty of Engineering and the triple-accredited Telfer School of Management. The program begins with 4 compulsory core courses to build your basic competencies in these areas:

  • Introduction to Engineering Management 
  • Principles of Accounting and Finance 
  • Principles of Management and Leadership 
  • Foundations of Project Management

To supplement this core, you must then complete 6 courses from among four specialization modules. If you complete all of the courses in a module, it will be noted on your transcript, but you are free to choose any 6 courses. These are the modules:

  • Data Analytics (3 courses) 
  • Advanced Project Management (3 courses) 
  • Product Innovation Management (3 courses) 
  • Operations Management (3 courses)  

Let’s now take a closer look at the Advanced Project Management specialization module. 

Advanced Project Management Module

Enhancing the core competencies, the Advanced Project Management module builds on the compulsory core courses and adds several layers of knowledge and skills through the entire project life cycle - from identification through design, planning, realization, and close-out.

In this specialized module, you will do the following:

  • Learn the additional and essential aspects of technology project management  
  • Study the complexities of project information management 
  • Understand the factors that can put projects at risk and how to manage these challenges.
