Infrastructure Show: Universities should offer programme management courses, says CH2M Hill

Programme manager CH2M Hill is considering funding a pioneering university course specific to programme management, CH2M Hill managing director for Europe Roy Hill said yesterday.

Hill told an audience at NCE’s Infrastructure Show that the company was looking at the possibility of sponsoring “a major educational institution” to develop a course specific to programme management. This could be a course at a major university, or it could be done elsewhere, he said.

Hill said the decision will depend on the company’s budget for next year. He said major projects in the UK are already helping to raise a generation of civil engineers with project management skills, but he would like to see a formal course developed. Project management training is already available for CH2M Hill employees, he said.

Hill said CH2M Hill’s acquisition of consultant Halcrow last month is expected to be complete early in November, subject to approvals being received.
