Who should attend?
The Engineering Leadership Institute (ELI) at the University of Texas at Austin is pleased to announce the launch of its newly redesigned Engineering Leadership Certificate program. This course of study is designed for engineers who have become first-time managers of projects or people. We know that making the transition from individual technical contributor to strategic manager requires the development of a different skill set. The Engineering Leadership Institute is designed to help you do exactly that, with just the right mix of lecture and interactive sessions to give you exceptional tools for success!
Our results-based learning approach marries theory with practical skills, to help you identify and resolve the challenges of leading technical professionals. During class, you will focus on your current work experiences, and will immediately be able to apply what you learn, taking back new approaches and strategies to your workplace.
The Engineering Leadership Certificate program is presented in a series of four 2-day sessions. When you complete all four sessions within a two year period, you will receive a certificate in Engineering Leadership. You may complete the courses in any order as they are not sequential.
You will learn:
- Strategies for getting buy-in from others
- How to build a sense of mission
- How to communicate clearly with others, both engineers and non-engineers
- Processes for building successful collaborative relationships
- Techniques for developing a communications plan
- How to deliver bad news
- Participants are expected to be professionally involved in management.
