Program Details

The program is offered three times per year, starting in September, January and April. It is composed of six courses of varying lengths, which are taken over a 14-week period, although students have the option of completing it over several terms to a maximum of two years. The courses are designed to be taken in sequence to give you the opportunity to progressively work through the entire life cycle of a project - from initiation to closeout. The program finishes with a practical integration project. This final project provides an opportunity to demonstrate competency by consolidating the skills developed throughout the program. Students choose their own projects to complete the 12 required assignments. For more information, please download our Program Information Sheet.
