Upskilling @ StrathclydeEngineering Project Management CPD Refresher

What you'll learn

Engineering Project Management has been identified as an area with a rapidly rising increase in global demand, and a huge diversity of roles. It's predicted that there are more project manager positions in the manufacturing and construction sectors than any other – estimated at around 10 million globally. While many of these will become available as large numbers of project managers approach retirement, there are also predicted to be a high volume of newly-created positions due to the well-publicised skills gap. It is further highlighted that engineering talent, specifically those with skills in project management are scarce and in short supply.

This course offers an introduction to Engineering Project Management and will appeal to engineering professionals considering a move into project management.

It will provide an overview of how engineering projects are managed and what effective engineering project management is. It will also look at the issues and challenges that project managers face.


Throughout the course you will be asked to complete a number of short online quizzes attached to each topic.



It is taught exclusively online, can be accessed online anywhere, at anytime and at your own pace.

All course materials will be available via our virtual learning environment. It will be delivered through a combination of self-paced study - lectures, tutorials, live sessions and online quizzes to complete. You can take the quizzes any number of times, until passed and completed.
