The University of Calgary Department of Civil
Engineering is offering new continuing education opportunities
for engineers and project managers, through the establishment
of the Calgary Centre for Engineering and Project Management
Education. The fee-based courses, offered in mornings and
one- and two-day formats, began in September, with the aim
of allowing attendees to broaden their skills and learn more
about trends important to their careers.
"The objective of this new initiative is to respond to
industry needs in engineering and project management,"
says a press release from the centre. Initially, the centre
is offering two tracks, both of interest to the public and
private sectors. The first track is project management courses,
the second is civil engineering courses.
The one and two-day courses allow for in-depth examination
of a subject and "the opportunity to reflect on subject
matter," says the release. Morning sessions are geared
to greater variety and scope.
Among upcoming courses are Building Trust on Projects, Nov.
21, and High Performance Project Management, Dec. 4 and 5.
