This program is designed to provide engineers and computer scientists with the management skills needed to successfully perform in leadership positions. Such skills include:
- the effective use of people management and negotiation skills when supervising fellow engineers.
- utilizing proper project management and engineering economics techniques to organize teams toward the delivery of on-time and on-budget results.
- recognizing product-design liability issues from both the manufacturer’s and customer’s perspectives.
- employing communication techniques to best convey the benefits and obstacles associated with a project, helping marketing and upper management to better sell the related product.
