Course Aim

Together with other students be able to apply basic project management theory in order to:
• Plan, implement, report and reflect on the outcome of their project,
• From a client perspective based on given conditions, plan construction projects and justify their choices.

Based on given project conditions with the support of theory and examples of best practice independently describe and reflect on:
• the perspectives and needs of different stakeholders and how these are taken into account in management of construction projects.
• how different ways to organize, control and lead are important for successful management of construction projects
• personal development in the role of project manager and/or project staff.

The course focuses on the early phases of the construction process. It deals with common and  general project-related concepts and theoretical models, the various project phases, management and control of projects, plans and objectives. Personal leadership is put in relation to the organization, implementation, and the economic and temporal conditions of a construction project.

Students obtain the theoretical material from the course literature and with the support of lectures. The application oftheory is practiced and tested in a project assignment where students work in groups. Students are to plan and implement their own work, based on acquired knowledge, and should use this knowledge to jointly plan a construction project based on conditions given in the course.The groups present their findings and discuss their choices for the project assignment at seminars. the students' knowledge of the subject is further broadened and trained through various guest lectures and workshops.

Basic understanding of the theoretical content is assessed through individual written assignments during the course. Deeper knowledge and practical skills are assessed collectively through written and oral presentation of a project assignment.
