Student Profile

Mahdi Mousa

I chose to study a masters at the University of Leeds as it is a Russell Group university which means that it is among the leading 24 universities in the UK that are committed to the highest educational standards and have a sound reputation within both the public and private sectors. Thus, obtaining a masters degree from the University of Leeds will result in both tangible and intangible benefits for degrees’ holders wherever they go.

The best aspect of studying this course was that the structure of the engineering project management program caught my attention from the first moment. As presented on the website, and validated later on through lectures and assignments, it is focused, relevant and comprehensive, and equips the students with the tools and techniques required to succeed not only in their careers but also in their personal lives. The eight modules are efficiently distributed throughout the academic year so that students, with proper planning and time management, can easily meet their academic obligations and fulfill their personal interests. If I have to describe the program in few words then I will say it is the program that helps the individual to learn and apply logical, analytical, critical, strategic and creative thinking in addressing different contemporary problems in order to come up with optimum solutions. Although it is true that concepts such as project planning, value management and risk management are taught in the context of engineering projects management, I noticed that they are of a great value in both micro and macro levels. One example is related to the value management module in which we studied that the value of anything increases as its functions increase or the required resources decrease. This simple, but important, concept stimulated my thinking to maximize the value of several items in my house by using them for different purposes. Another example is related to risk management module in which we studied how to identify and assess relevant risks in order to make better decisions which is a skill that could be used on the level of operation, project, corporate and even country.
