The goal of the Rice University course Management for Science and Engineering (MSCI-610 - ENGI 610) is to provide the skills for science and engineering to meet the challenges of their future careers, whether they be in academia, industry, or as an entrepreneur. The course was started in 1998 and has evolved over the years. The course is taught to undergraduates, graduate students, and professional masters students and involves the areas of organizational behavior & leadership, accounting, marketing, strategy, entrepreneurship, and project management. It is this last area that is covered in this book. Irrespective of your future career in science and engineering you will be involved in projects and an awareness of the factors that enable a successful project is important for all team members. It should be recognized that the topics included in the book are not limited to scientists and engineers, they are useful for people in any careers. This course is not aimed at making you a certified project manager, but to provide the skills that will allow you to be a more effective project team member and also when you are dragged screaming and kicking into the role of accidental project manager.
