Managing Engineering Processes in Large Infrastructure Projects


This course discusses the main design and development (EDD) process involved in the making of the assets required as part of large infrastructure projects and associated components. Current shortcomings and Systems Thinking/Engineering based methods are introduced to equip the delegates with the tools and techniques to detect and prevent design errors and lead or facilitate the design of complex systems such as road or rail networks, power plants, mines, and mining operations.

Why Should an Individual Attend?

Project managers are usually admonished for projects failures. However, such fiascos often arise from engineering management failures. Hence, learning the nature and scope of engineering errors and methods to prevent such from occuring is very critical to the success of large infrastructure projects. Project engineers will learn to appreciate the intersections with and contributions from other project team members in securing the “right design”.


On completion of this course, you will:
  • Have the aptitude to detect/prevent design or other engineering mistakes
  • Have the aptitude to lead/facilitate the design of complex assets and systems
  • Identify engineering outputs
  • Understand how errors in engineering may cause financial/economic and/or reputational failures through project overruns and failure
