Description


The Master’s in Engineering Project Management (Mestrado em Gestão de Projetos de Engenharia - MGPE) aims to train professionals of various profiles, prepared to manage technology development and implementation processes of highly complex engineering projects. The training endeavored by MGPE enables specialization into three engineering project areas: construction (building and civil engineering works), industrial engineering (manufacturing industry and services) and information systems (information technology and information systems). Training through the MGPE program enables competent and scientifically informed professional performance in engineering project management, through the combination of scientific and technological knowledge with the abilities to plan, control and manage those projects economically and with adequate standards.
MGPE is an educational project involving three departments of the School of Engineering (Department of Production and Systems, Department of Information Systems and Department of Civil Engineering) and will include human resources and know-how available in the different departments in the areas covered by the master programme, being this interdisciplinary considered a strength in the field of Project Management.

Access to higher education


This Master degree provides basic training to carry out a course of 3rd cycle (PhD) in the same scientific area, or other areas.

Careers


The main objective of the Master in Engineering Project Management is to qualify students with solid skills to participate and manage engineering projects in general, with a special focus given to projects in the areas of Industrial Engineering (projects within the manufacturing industry and the manufacturing and services), Information Systems (projects related to information technology and information systems) and construction (public buildings and civil engineering works).
