Student Feedback

“EGMT 625: Project Planning, Scheduling, and Control gave me the ability to explore my skills using MS Project 2007. Furthermore, it gave me a better understanding of how important project planning was to a project and how it tied back to cost/budget as well the scope.” -Olatunde Ajala, MS EM Alumnus 2010, Lockheed Martin - League City, TX
