3 Week course

Project Management

- The Three week Course

Engage critically with theories and practices to improve your understanding and practice of Project Management. 

Become reflective a project practitioner

Future Reflective Project Practitioners - welcome to "42429/42430 – Project Management", and thank you for your interest! 
Projects are integral to engineering work, and, we argue, the second most important skill of engineers. Therefore, project management competences are fundamental to all DTU students. The general purpose of the course is to enable you to participate in projects and critically and appropriately apply project management theories, concepts and tools in practice. You will have unique insights into how project management is practiced through the analysis of a "real" world project. You will also experience the role of project manager as each student will be responsible to manage at least one day of the group work, i.e. to be the ‘Project Manager of the Day’.

Project Game Hall of Fame

In every course (in January and August) “we connect the dots” by a project game that challenge students to put theory into action by managing their own project. To win the game, the team must successfully plan a construction project, manage the resources, react to unexpected events - and manage the risks related to the team' decisions. In the final lecture we award the winners in the following categories:

  • The BEST Project Management 
  • The BEST Client experience     
  • The BEST Contractor experience
  • The BEST Fighters
