About the course


The goal of this specializing master is to teach the most important tools and techniques of project and contract management to both engineers and architects. Today it is increasingly important to know how a project should be managed from beginning to end, to optimize costs and time. During this specializing master the students will be introduced to the theory of project management, the valuation of investments, and the principles of corporate accounting. Students will receive all the needed information to take the exam and obtain the PMI (Project Management Institute) and IPMA (International Project Management Association) certificates. They will also receive all the information necessary to take the exam and obtain the NEBOSH HSE certificate in Process Safety Management. Students will receive all the information necessary to become Lean Green Belt Project Leader, and also all the information necessary to become certified project managers in Italy through Accredia. Besides all those PM tools, this specializing master will also provide more specific concepts of contract, claims and delays management in civil and infrastructural works. The need for technicians (engineers and / or architects) who become competent in the management of contracts and claims and who can perform a delay analysis in accordance with commonly applied international standards is increasingly urgent among the major general contractors in Italy and abroad. Our globalized world requires that professionals involved in contract and dispute management know how to deal with complex technical issues and at the same time know the legal aspects involved. It is essential for professionals with a purely technical background to know the "rules of the game" on the international arena. Therefore, they should know the fundamental principles of civil and common law, as well as international arbitration, together with the most widely used international contracts (FIDIC, JCT, NEC, AAA) and the many complex technical and legal details in the analysis and management of delays and construction variants.
