Project management teaching in engineering higher education: A new perspective for developing competencies

Research Areas
  • Didactics of experimental sciences

This paper sets out the methodological basis of a cooperative model for interdisciplinary training focused towards developing competencies for the certification in Project Management. The model is being gradually phased in a new way by the GIE-project Group at graduate and post-graduate educational levels (in an International Erasmus Mundus Master¿s, an international PhD course, and a Post-Graduate Seminar). The educational cooperation strategy is directed towards obtaining a validation of competencies as to knowledge, experience and attitudes in line with the standards of the International Project Management Association (IPMA). The results show how phasing in teaching aims across different educational levels facilitates a gradual training in the 46 elements of competencies required to obtain the IPMA¿s certification in Project Management. The educational strategy is conceived as a new teaching dimension within the framework of the EHEA, taking the course projects - a Preliminary course plan of the subjects, a Final Degree Course Project and a Final Master¿s Course Project- as an educational component suited to generating a "pre-work experience" to link teaching activity to the business and industrial environment.
