Objectives The different phases of the life-cycle of products, processes and services in engineering are becoming more and more connected, thus it is needed to take into account aspects like technology acquisition, human resources management, cost control, quality assurance or risk control. In their professional careers, the engineers of the future will probably need to deal with projects in which the challenge will be to guarantee an equilibrium between quality, cost and time in order to satisfy the client.

The program of this Course is divided in three parts: The first part aims to introduce the ground knowledge for engineering project planning, providing the students with the basic concepts, methods and tools. The second one gives a practical introduction to face the management problems that arise during an engineering project, providing tools to control and guarantee the project quality. The third part covers several topics related to innovation processes, such as intellectual property management or open innovation. The students will work on a case study to put in practice the acquired knowledge.
