The elective specialty Management of Innovative Projects

The elective specialty "Management of Innovative Projects" is a valid path to obtaining the UTC engineering diploma, whatever the elective major chosen (GB, GI, GM, GP, GSM or GSU), given that it takes onto account socio-economic realities and the now well-established need to be able to work efficiently in teams.


Student-engineers opting for MPI first receive a solid grounding in the main scientific and technological tools for their elective specialty. The skills and knowhow that are specific to functions needed for these future managers come in addition, covering project management techniques, marketing, research, development, industrialization, quality control and industrial economics, patents and standards, ICTs and knowledge management, manpower resources, mind-mapping, brainstorming,; storyboarding together with various problem-solving techniques (AV, QFD, CCO, etc.).
