Project Management - Information Technology

Program description

Seneca's School of Information and Communications Technology is a recognized leader in developing and delivering programs that address the cutting–edge advances and innovation taking place in the fast–paced Information Technology industry. Project management methodologies and techniques have evolved from the traditional waterfall methodology through incremental and iterative development to agile methodologies. What distinguishes the Project Management – IT graduate certificate is that it gives students grounding in all of these methodologies as they are currently being practiced in the IT industry and an understanding of when each is most appropriate to follow. The Project Management Institute (PMI®)has designated Seneca as a Global Registered Educational Provider (R.E.P). The courses within Seneca’s Project Management – Information Technology curriculum will provide the graduate with the requisite theory and the PDUs (Professional Development Units) necessary to write the qualifying examinations for PMI® credentials: specifically, the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM®) Credential, the Project Management Professional (PMP®) Credential, and the new PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI–ACPSM). Graduates of this one year program (8 months of study plus 4 months optional co–op) will be able to apply project management skills to entry–level positions in a wide range of software development and IT administration projects. This program covers Project Management, Project Leadership, Accounting & Finance, Agile Methodology, Systems Development, Quality Assurance, and Contract Law/Ethics/Professionalism.
