About our ProjectLab

ProjectLab is a research group based in the Engineering Systems division of the Technical University in Denmark (DTU). We exist to support the development practices for managing projects to enable societal transformation.

Projects abound in contemporary society and have become a vital form of organizing deliberate change, from the development of new technologies to implementation of sustainability policies, and it is therefore reasonable to argue that we are in the wake of the Project Society.

Projects are particularly central to engineering. Engineering is about creating value for society and businesses by solving societal challenges through the development and implementation of technology. Engineering is a matter of change, a change that is organized in projects, one way or another. Arguably, project management is the second most important competence for engineers. Project management enables them to organize their technical capabilities in a team that collectively solves societal challenges. Most, if not all engineers, will be involved in projects throughout their education and career.

Our teaching ecosystem targets every students and practitioner that have a special interest in projects. Building our unique resources and innovative learning practices we help our students to successfully participate in any kind of project, becoming reflective projects practitioners and project changes agents. Our courses cover the field of Project Management, Program and Portfolio Management. Currently, this counts one 13-week course (Advanced Project, Program and Portfolio Management) and one 3-week course (Project Management) running twice a year, at DTU. Shortly, a new, online course on “How to DO Projects” will be launched, that will give the opportunity for DTU students to organize their projects more efficiently, by providing all the practical, elementary tools.

Our ProjectLab is developed and maintained by a 3-professor faculty staff, several PhDs and postdocs as well as student assistants sharing our passion for projects.
