Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course reveals the intricacies involved with developing and implementing the Manhattan Project; a project of national as well as worldwide importance. The first part of this course focuses on the war-mongering efforts of the Germans and the Japanese to change the world's balance of power. The second part of this course describes in great detail the efforts of the many volunteer scientists and engineers, under the supervision of a proven military leader, to do something that many skeptics thought could not be done. The Manhattan Project emphasizes the tenacity and wisdom of key people in the military as well as in the private sector who combined their considerable talents to complete such an enormous project when the stakes were so high.

 

The project may be considered by some Americans to be a research project, and in many ways it was. But an engineer or a military person would see it from a different perspective. Without the support of individual engineers and without the vision and wisdom of our scientists and military leaders, this project could not have achieved the success that it did and the world might have been changed forever.

 

This 5 PDH online course is intended for engineers of all disciplines interested in understanding the project management strategies applied as well as the leadership skills and techniques used to overcome the obstacles encountered during the implementation of the Manhattan Project.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Understanding the enormous pressure that confronted the military, scientists, and engineers.
  • Learning how engineers, working with physicists and other scientists, coped with an unknown technology and very few references.
  • Acknowledging the role that federal government officials (including the military) played in the approval and development of one of the world's most well-known projects.
  • Discovering how leadership played such a major factor in one of the most significant projects in history.
  • Following the strategies used by the civilian and military project managers to get the results they desired.
  • Understanding the techniques used by engineers and project managers despite an occasional lack of communications and limited research experience.
