ENGR 531 - Engineering Risk Analysis

  • 3 credits
View available sections

Successful engineering project management includes estimation and proactive risk identification and development of mitigation techniques. System uncertainty is reduced when project risks are identified, quantified, and mitigation strategies implemented. Tools, techniques, and methodologies used by successful project managers will be examined.

Students registering for the 702 section are expected to attend the class in person at United Launch Alliance, 7630 S Chester Street in Centennial CO (South Denver) unless other arrangements are made with the instructor.
