Content and structure of the minor

The minor gives students skills needed in how to successfully conduct projects in industries and infrastructure, as for example energy, shipbuilding and innovative start-ups. The courses include real-life cases and the teaching methods are combination of physical and virtual lectures.

Participating in these courses gives the student excellent capabilities in how projects are conducted and the requirements in international project business. Students are also trained in how projects are planned through feasibility studies and business ecosystem studies.

As much of the future activities take place in projects and project organisation it is especially beneficial for students to learn about methods in project management for both large projects and small, innovative start-up projects.
