Maritime Project management option

This option of the Specialized Master's Degree® in Maritime Project Management includes project management courses in the specific context of the naval field (naval economics, law of the sea, naval policies, etc.) and international field.

  • Act as an interface between the parties involved (inside/outside): the aim is to translate the request into technical specifications and, if necessary, to make trade-offs.
  • Organise the response to the invitation to tender, and then draw up the specifications and coordinate their drafting with those involved (inside team, industrial partners, subcontractors, etc.). 
  • Assemble the technical team: identify resources and skills, coordinate teamwork and give impetus to the network.
  • Negotiate equipment: draft technical invitations to tender for the industry, analyse bids and set up a selection procedure, and purchase the required equipment.
  • Monitor compliance and quality: assess quality assurance, provide quality control.
  • Communicate on the project: inform its professional networks, anticipate any resistance to the project, work in consultation with associations and civil society, and work towards the project's acceptability.
  • Organize the project's documentation: produce project documents, ensure technological monitoring for equipment.
