Master Project Management (civil Engineer (-in))

Campus Full time 3 semesters October 2016 Germany Biberach

The execution of projects in the planning and execution is for some years in a change that will further strengthen this according to experts. [+]

The Project manager (-in) / Civil Engineering (-in) (Master) The execution of projects in the planning and execution is for some years in a change that will further strengthen this according to experts. The trend is towards a holistic management of projects transferred increasingly general planners, contractors and -übernehmern. Both the economic and technical success of the projects is increasingly dependent on the management and control of the actors concerned. These tasks are increasingly outsourced to external or internal company project manager / managers. Due to the increasing complexity of projects in this day and age, this means that a well-functioning project management makes an increasing contribution to the project success. For such services job in construction, as well as in industry, more skilled project managers are always needed. Career Options As a project manager (-in) / Civil Engineering (-in) (master) is to achieve a leadership position in the first place. Construction management, construction supervision, work planning and project control u. a the activities that can be applied to a variety of employers. In addition to building contractors, project control, engineering and planning agencies, including local, state and federal authorities to potential employers. Thanks to the interdisciplinary training are a project manager (-Innen) in other trades welcome workers. The automotive industry, utilities and waste management companies, event management are just a part of the many alternatives to the construction industry. - Construction Manager / in - Surveyors / r - Advisor / in real estate industry - Facility Manager / in - water pollution control officer / r - Engineer / in - Construction - Engineering / in - building / facility management - calculator / in - / in - work preparation - Property Manager / in (real estate) - Process Manager / in - Environmental Management Officer / r Career opportunities The number of vacancies for engineers is always risen in recent years. Given the chronic shortage of skilled workers in Germany, the longer-term outlook could hardly be better. "A degree in engineering is now almost a guaranteed job," said Willi Fuchs of the Association of German Engineers (VDI) in the Süddeutsche Zeitung. Especially in the construction industry, the demand for young engineers since 2005 no longer be covered (statistics of the German construction industry). Will be looking for the company, according to a report by the employment agency Adecco, reinforced engineers in the field of project management. Technical knowledge coupled with extensive management skills is the sought-after training constellation. At this skills shortage is unlikely to change much in the future. Although the number of graduates in engineering rises again, but the increasing demand therefore can not long be covered. Yet this is, according to Fox, the average age of the engineers at 50 years. This leads to the conclusion that in the next 10 years, about 450,000 engineers will retire. But more and more companies are looking globally deployable staff. Motivated young professionals and managers have a good chance to be at the beginning of the career come true from abroad the dream. For many engineers of "think outside the box" is a career boost. To abroad to work, you have to apply directly there, not necessarily. Working Without Borders also offer many companies based in Germany. In view of the defendant engineering defect, the industry is looking increasingly women and sees in them a tremendous talent reserve. To more and more young women to inspire a technical study of governments, companies and associations have the "Girls Day" was launched. These efforts seem already to bear fruit. So is the proportion of women, according to a report by the Federal Employment Agency, architects and civil engineers in 2010 at 27%. This is the time when the construction industry was considered an exclusively male domain, probably over.
