Project Management: from Nano to Mega


About this minor

It is often said that today's society has become 'projectified'. We want to create ever-more-complicated products on an ever-larger scale, yet we still want them to be unique. Project management is the ideal way to organise the realisation of this diversity of products. This minor deals with all aspects of project management. With the help of examples from practice, ranging from nano-industry to megaprojects, you will gain a greater understanding of this discipline.

Learning outcomes

You will learn the basic aspects of project management for technical projects. Project skills will also be covered, since you will be working in a multidisciplinary team.
You will be given many examples of project management practice in different technical domains, like construction, nano-industry, traditional production industry, ICT and public infrastructure megaprojects.
You will learn how to write a thorough project plan for a project that relates to your Bachelor's programme.
Many of the TU Delft lecturers involved have extensive experience in executing projects in practice and guests of a broad variety of companies contribute to the minor.
