Good job! I wish I had learned [project management] earlier in my career. Too many project management concepts were lost on me and my work would have benefited from learning them earlier.

Excellent class, especially the MS Project portion. As a project manager I had used the software very sparingly, but didn't know all the other capabilities it had.

The course is a great introduction to project management and should be taken by all engineers at some point in their careers.
