If you are looking for ways to leverage your engineering or information and communications technology degree to advance your career, consider Saskatchewan Polytechnic's new Project Management post-graduate certificate (PMPGC). The Project Management Institute (PMI) is predicting a 33% increase in project management jobs world-wide and Canada is expected to add an estimated 9,000 project management jobs every year for the next 10 years. These predictions present opportunities for those with the right training and skills.
The one-year Project Management post-graduate certificate program provides degree graduates with a strong foundation in essential project management skills. Our curriculum has been developed with input from industry stakeholders, which ensures students receive a relevant, work-focused learning experience.
You will study the fundamentals of project management, project initiation and planning, project scheduling and budgeting, directing and managing project work, procurement and contract management, alternative methodologies for project management, as well as project closing and evaluation. Several courses will help you prepare for Project Management Institute designation exams.
Saskatchewan Polytechnic gives you the opportunity to interact with industry through work-integrated learning opportunities, including course projects, and guest speakers. You will also build critical human skills through courses in leadership and professionalism, organizational behaviour and business communications.
Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR) and international transfer credit are not available for this program.
Transfer credit will be assessed for equivalent post-graduate courses completed at a recognized Canadian post-secondary institution.
