Project Management in Industrial Design Engineering and Research


Recommended prerequisite for participation in the module

The student must have knowledge, skills and competencies within the architectural design and engineering field corresponding to the completion of the MSc01 and MSc02 Architectural Engineering education or similar.

Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

A summary approach to project management within design, product and knowledge development. Linking previous project experiences and approaches to project management theories and methodological knowledge production, this module aims to elevate the students understanding of project management and capability to design projects within product development and knowledge production.

Students who complete the module:

Learning objectives


  • Must be able to describe, analyse and evaluate current theories and practice in project management in product development.
  • Must be able to describe and analyse a coherent relation between objective, data, theories and methods for a relevant research project framing for a knowledge production project.



  • Must be able to apply methods of planning and scheduling of product development projects in relation to resources.
  • Must be able to construct, revise and use a project framing for a relevant, minor research project.
  • Must be able to identifying work elements, estimating activity durations, preparing network schedules and schedule updates, analysing planned vs. actual project progress


  • Can analyse and apply relevant methods and theories for project management in product development and/or knowledge production and research projects within a given set of resources and prerequisites.
