The real life application of the content in which the courses were taught is the most meaningful aspect of UMD’s Project Management Program.

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 United States Navy; Graduate, Master of Engineering (MEng) 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 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
