Program Lead: Thomas Sheives, PhD, PMP
The 36-semester hour graduate program in Project Management provides each student with a focused, applied and rigorous experience in creating, developing, implementing and assessing projects and the resulting products. To produce a high-quality product or service on time and to the specifications of a client, the skills and knowledge of a typical subject matter expert are not enough. The complexities of modern product development and project management require a professional with specific technical knowledge with strong project management and leadership skills. This program of study leads to a Master of Science degree that prepares the student for career advancement in the field of project management and for positions such as project manager, project coordinator, lead project engineer, enterprise project manager or information technology project manager.
