Director's Welcome

Welcome to the Project Management Center for Excellence in the A. James Clark School of Engineering. We are located in the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering but the program is designed for engineers and architects with any technical background. Indeed, 80% of our graduate students are from technical backgrounds other than civil engineering, including information technology, mechanical engineering, fire protection engineering, electrical engineering, and other technical disciplines.

Thank you for an amazing semester and class. I learned a lot this past summer and I hope we meet again.

Awais Qazi Student; Graduate, Undergraduate Minor in Construction Project Management

It has been a great semester and [Managing Projects in a Dynamic Environment (ENCE624) has been] one of the best classes i have taken in the program!

Tommy Le

I took ENCE422 as an elective two semesters ago, and I'm glad I did! Having mastered cash flow analysis, a large chunk of the FE exam was suspiciously easy for me.

Will Harris

I'm finishing up Navy projects in Cameroon. My unit deployed to Spain this past February and I was assigned to lead a detachment here about four months ago. I really think I could write a book about my project experiences. A big part of why we (were successful) is directly attributable to the things I learned at UMD. I have used every single course I took.

Robert Warren

Thanks for being such a wonderful teacher. This has undoubtedly been my best class so far.

Piyana Mondal

I knew the PMBOK principles and methods we discussed with you in ENCE320 were pretty significant to the career I was choosing for myself, but what I did not know the extent to which I would someday use them. Today, I find my myself applying just as much PM knowledge as I do with structures and transportation, if not more. Planning and scheduling are gradually becoming a critical part of my work.

Daniel Wungko

I just wanted to thank you for teaching a very intriguing course this past semester. It was definitely one of my favorite and most enjoyable classes at the university and has sparked my interest in the project management career path.

Jeff Robinson

ENCE662 is an excellent introduction to the discipline of project management as well as the University of Maryland. I look forward to continuing my coursework toward the masters in project management.

Maegan Helble

I think UMD has done a nice job with the course surveys.

Michael O’Connor

The faculty is phenomenal. Each has experience working in a different field, such as architecture, construction, and government.
