The University of Leeds is one of the largest higher education institutions in the UK, and weâ€™re thrilled to announce our new partnership that will bring their teaching expertise to learners all over the world.
Leeds is ranked in the top 100 in the world for engineering and technology, and their programs are led by academics at the forefront of their subjects. Research is at the heart of Leedsâ€™ learning and teaching, and their academics draw on the latest discoveries to inform online courses provided by Leedsâ€™ Digital Education Service.
Professor Neil Morris, Director of Digital Learning at the University of Leeds, said, â€œThis new partnership is in line with our strategy to be a world leader in digital education. We are also pleased to be offering postgraduate credit-bearing courses on Coursera, which learners will be able to use towards fully online distance learning programs. This will provide flexibility and access to learners from all over the world, and will provide much-needed education and skills training.â€�
Their new Managing Major Engineering Projects Specialization launches today and is made up of three courses and a credit-bearing Capstone Project. Completion of the Specialization can lead to the award of 15 postgraduate credits from the University of Leeds, which can then count towards the universityâ€™s MSc Engineering Management online degree.
â€œMajor engineering projects all over the world play a crucial role in shaping the lives of millions of people. They are often controversial, with spectacular failures as well as breathtaking success stories. We designed these courses to help learners make sense of current and past projects, and learn the skills and know-how to become protagonists in the fascinating realm of major engineering projects.â€� – Specialization instructor and Lecturer in Infrastructure Procurement and Management, Dr. Giorgio Locatelli
