Project Estimating and Cost Management
|Course Name||Project Estimating and Cost Management|
|Description||Project Estimation and Cost Management is all about learning to first estimate efficiently and then deliver projects on budget by managing costs.
The course will take you through the major areas of concern when it comes to project estimation and cost management, including: principles of project cost estimation, estimation techniques, and incorporation of the cost estimates into a project cost plan and subsequent project budgets. The course will teach you, once a plan has been developed, the continued principle of cost management and control, the cost change approval process, and the relationship to other project management knowledge areas such as scope time and quality.
This offering is broken down into participation (10 per cent of your final grade), two term projects (each worth 25 per cent of your final grade), and a mid-term and final exam (each worth 20 per cent of your final grade).
