Dear Aspirant,

Mechanical and Civil Engineers today need to learn a very important thing and that is Project Management. Companies today are very keen and concerned about optimum utilisation of resources and Project Management can help exactly to have this.

Project Management as a certification from PMI USA will be very beneficial to every engineer.

Best wishes
