It is only after several years of practice that these engineers will acquire themselves the capability to manage a project during all the phases of its life cycle.
  • Description: the course will contain the following items
    • Description and justification of the main principles of managing a project all along its life cycle (Technology Readiness Level, V Cycle, specificities, phases, development logic, validation logic).
