The following educational institutions have been approved to offer the Diploma of Technology in Project Management at the time when this curriculum takes effect: - VIA University College, School of Continuing Education - Copenhagen University College of Engineering, Centre for Continuing Education For the purpose of developing the joint curriculum and in the event of major changes, the institutions are in contact with potential employers and other stakeholders and also ask the chairmen of the external examiners for a recommendation, cf. the Examination Order. The curriculum and major changes take effect at the beginning of a study year and must contain the required transitional arrangements. The curriculum takes effect on 1 July The purpose of the programme The purpose of the Diploma of Technology in Project Management is to equip the students to work as professional project managers. This involves the ability to set up, plan, manage and implement projects in accordance with the objectives of the project. Another objective of the programme is to provide the students with understanding of project conditions, from an internal and an external point of view. This will enable the students to manage projects based on one or more fundamental organisations and manage the conditions applicable to the project environment. This objective is within the objective of the subject area as laid down in the Order on Diploma Programmes. 3. Programme duration The prescribed duration of the programme is one student full-time equivalent. One student full-time equivalent is the amount of work carried out by one full-time student over a year and equivalent to 60 ECTS credits (European Credit Transfer System). 1

5 ECTS credits is a number that expresses the estimated total work load required to complete a programme or module. A student full-time equivalent includes the work load from all types of activities associated with the programme or module, including scheduled lessons, independent study, project work, production of written assignments, exercises and cases plus examinations and other forms of assessment. 4. Programme title With this programme the student earns the right to use the designation Diploma of Technology in Project Management (in Danish TD i Projektledelse) after their name, cf. the Order on Diploma Programmes, Appendix Admission requirements To be admitted to the Diploma of Technology in Project Management programme or individual modules in the programme, it is a condition that the applicant has passed a relevant qualifying programme, as a minimum at the level of a business academy degree or relevant further education for adults corresponding to an AP-degree (VVU-degree) and that the applicant has minimum 2 years of relevant professional work experience after completion of the qualifying programme.

For a detailed description of learning objectives, contents and scope of the compulsory modules, please see Appendix 1. Elective modules, cf. Appendix 2 Elective programme modules that are individually chosen must total 15 ECTS credits for each student. 3

7 For a detailed description of learning objectives, contents and scope of the elective modules within the academic scope of the programme, please see Appendix 2. In addition, the student can choose modules outside the academic scope of this programme for a maximum of 15 ECTS credits. The institution offers advice on the choice of modules outside the academic scope of this programme. Students may choose elective modules from other programmes and subject areas. The following programmes are deemed to be relevant in relation to the Diploma of Technology in Project Management: Engineering Business Administration / Engineer management programme Diploma of Technology in Energy and Environment Diploma of Technology in Maintenance Diploma in Management Final project The final project counting as 15 ECTS credits completes the programme. The final project must document that the student has met the programme objective in relation to learning achieved. The final project must relate to the academic field covered by the programme, and the wording must incorporate any elective modules outside the academic field. The institution is to approve of the subject. In order to qualify for the exam in the final project, the student must have passed all compulsory and elective modules (a total of 45 ECTS credits). 7. Final project The purpose of the final project is to teach the students to identify, reflect on and analyse a practical project management problem and to offer solutions and ways of action through the application of theories, strategies and methods from the programme modules. 7.1 of the final project Objectives for learning achieved Understand the basis of recognition in the context of theory of science and in relation to the methods and theories used in the final project. Understand and reflect on the fact that applying several methods correctly will attribute a higher overall validity to surveys. Apply knowledge about project management theories and methods in a reflective manner. Select and assess one or more relevant methods for collection of empirical data. Select theories and models that will contribute valuable perspectives to the project. Collect empirical data that supports the required basis of argumentation. 4

8 Evaluate the results of analyses in relation to the chosen theories and methods chosen and reflect on the applicability of the results in own project management practice. Communicate complex problems in relation to the organisation. Formulate the purpose of a specific project briefly and concisely. Draw conclusions on the basis of the arguments presented and recommend measures capable of handling the challenges that the project seeks to address. Apply the skills learned during the programme in own company/daily life. Must be able to discuss the theories and methods applied and put them into the perspective of own practical work. 7.2 Producing the final project The final project is produced and completed individually or in groups of two or three students during a semester. Students will be taught project method in relation to the following themes: Start-up, introduction to project method and final project Initial description of problems, project phases, delimitation, problem statement, choice of theories and models Need for information, choice of method and data collection, analysis and presentation. The final project is subsequently realised under regular supervision. The supervisor must approve the problem statement. 8. The pedagogical structure of the programme 8.1 Ways of teaching and working Academic material The programme must introduce the student to academic material (theories, real-life scenarios, debates, documents and statements) as is relevant for the module concerned. The tuition will integrate national and international research findings to the widest possible extent. A problem-based approach As an important part of the programme the student learns a problem-based and analytical approach to various types of texts and not least to various types of practical applications. This module is to get the student to apply what he/she reads while at the same taking a critical and constructive stance towards literature and experience. This requires that the students experience as well as the differences and similarities between sectors etc. form part of the problem-based work in both compulsory and elective modules. Programme structure It is fundamental to the academic and pedagogic structure of the programme that theoretical as well as practice-based understanding of the role as project manager and the competences of a consultant are core elements of the programme. 5

9 This means that the programme is based on the personal understanding achieved by the individual project manager, including the students own reflections on the practices of their own organisations in the light of the theoretical content of the programme. Basically, it is assumed that reflections on actions, behaviour and decisions are created during the course of the programme with the intention of influencing the way in which the students act individually as project managers or project participants in practice. This part of the programme therefore requires that the students use their own organisations as a development laboratory in relation to behaviour, actions and decisions during the programme. The programme s aim to develop an environment where networks and experience are exchanged (between the students) should at best facilitate reflection, actions, behaviour and decisions in their own organisations. Consequently, it is a core element of the programme that it succeeds in creating a student environment in which the interaction between theory and practice is stimulated across companies and industries and the public and private sectors. 8.2 Evaluation All modules will be evaluated before the exams in accordance with the evaluation procedures of the institution offering the programme (ask the programme secretary for a copy). The evaluations are used in the ongoing quality assurance and development of the individual modules, planning, organisation and teaching and for quality assurance and development of the programme as a whole. 9. Testing and assessment Each module is individually assessed by examination in the presence of an external examiner and graded according to the 7-point grading scale, cf. the Grading Scale Order (Order no of 24 August 2010). In order to pass the exam in a module the student must attain the mark of 02 or above. When the student has passed all individual elements of the programme, a certificate is issued for the diploma as such. The compulsory modules and the final project (a total of 45 ECTS credits) are assessed by an external examiner appointed by the Ministry from among the external examiners for the IT and Technology subject area. Elective modules are assessed by an internal examiner unless the module is a compulsory module which is part of another programme, in which case the module is assessed according to the curriculum applicable to that programme. A certificate is issued once the exam has been passed. In the course of the programme the student must be subjected to various forms of assessment, all focusing on the application of theory to the student's reality as part of the focus on developing the student s ability to act. Examples are: Project report followed by oral examination, for example with an opponent Presentation of a case involving relevant project management problems in the student s own organisation Synopsis followed by oral examination Essay followed by oral examination 6

10 The type of examination and assessment must reflect the competences the individual modules aim to develop. Detailed descriptions of the types of examination that are relevant to the various modules can be found in the student handbook issued by the educational institution offering the programme. The following examination regulations apply to the final project: The final project can be produced individually or in groups of two to three students. If the final project is produced in a group, the written report and the practical product, if any, will be subjected to an individual test in which the individual performance of the students, including individual parts of a product produced by a group, will be assessed according to the 7-point grading scale. The oral test is an individual test and takes the form of an oral defence based on the project. The final project may total up to 50 pages, not including cover page, table of contents and appendices, and can be expanded progressively with up to 20 pages per student subject to a maximum of three students. The examination will be individual and subject to individual assessment. A total of 60 minutes are allocated per student for the examination (presentation plus examination and evaluation). Marks will be given according to the 7-point grading scale. The basis of assessment comprises the written final project, the presentation and the oral defence. The outcome of the assessment must reflect an overall assessment of the final project and the oral defence. 10. Credits Transfer Individual modules described in this curriculum passed by a student at one institution are not treated as credits if the student chooses to continue the programme at one of the other institutions that also offer the Diploma of Technology in Project Management. The student will be admitted to the programme without any assessment, and all of the modules passed will be recognised by the new institution. In practice this is effected by sending a letter of transfer from one institution to the other at the student's request. Credits Programme elements that the student has passed in another Danish or foreign further education programme may, at the discretion of the individual institution, replace one or perhaps several modules. This is called credits. The decision is made based on an academic assessment of the equivalence of the programme elements concerned. These credits can total no more than 15 ECTS. 11. External examiners appointed by the Ministry of Education The Diploma of Technology in Project Management programme makes use of the external examiners appointed by the Ministry of Education within the IT and Technology subject area. 7
