Having problems with your engineering project? This book will be your lifesaver

How can we manage engineering projects and run these projects to completion while addressing all the technical and business issues?

In their latest book "Project Management for Engineers" published by World Scientific, Dr J. Michael Bennett and Mr Danny S.K. Ho highlight how project management is a core competency for all engineering disciplines. Although the focus of this book is on engineering projects, the theory and practice presented are equally applicable to any industry / domain.

Each chapter begins with the basics of the theme being developed at a level understandable to an undergraduate, before more complex topics are introduced at the end of each session that are suitable for graduate students. For the practicing professionals or managers in the industry, the book also provides many real illustrations of practical application of the principles of project management.

Project Management for Engineers is a direct attempt at addressing the ever-increasing and specific needs for better project management of engineering students, practicing engineers and managers in the industry. It aims not only to present the principles and techniques of Project Management, but also to discuss the project management standards, processes and requirements, such as PMBOK, IEEE and PRINCE. Through a realistic blend of theory and practical examples, as well as integration of the engineering technical issues with business issues, this book seeks to remove the veil of mystery that has shrouded the profession from its very beginning.
