Course Overview

A project is a unique, transient endeavour, undertaken to achieve planned objectives, which could be defined in terms of outputs, outcomes or benefits. A project is deemed to be a success if it achieves predetermined objectives within an agreed timescale and budget. Project management, then, is the application of knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques to project activities to meet the project requirements. A project management professional needs a wide range of skills; often technical skills, and certainly people management skills and good business awareness.

Due to COVID-19, Government has advised against all kinds of public gathering till further notice.
