Engineering project management program at Texas A&M University allows students with specific interests in project management to enhance their understating of project organizations, teams, management techniques and develop as future leaders. The program is based on a tiered approach that emphasizes: a) basic understanding of engineering project management for all TAMU engineering major graduates, b) advanced content and experiences for the students that show interest in better understanding project management, and c) specialized graduate level education in project management focusing on project-driven industries.
Data Analytics for Engineering and Construction Project Risk Management is one of the few texts that provides a step-by-step guidance on how to implement analytical methods in project risk management. The text focuses on engineering design and construction projects and as such is suitable for graduate students in engineering, construction, or project management, as well as practitioners aiming to develop, improve, and/or simplify corporate project management processes.
Texas A&M University engineers are looking to develop software for industry-standard computers and sensors for race cars at speeds of up to 200 mph. The prize is $1 million.The Indy Autonomous Challenge is a competition among universities that enables self-driving Dallara IL-15 Indy Lights formula cars to compete head-to-head at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway (IMS). Texas A&M was a part of the team that developed the competition, and is one of 21 universities to enter the race so far. The Texas A&M team, led by Dr. Ivan Damnjanovic, associate professor in the Zachry Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and the director of engineering project management, is composed of faculty and graduate and undergraduate students.
