Paticipatory Project Planning and Management


The demand for higher levels of education, especially higher diploma, postgraduate studies and bachelor’s degree has increased drastically in recent years due to the up-scaling numbers of form six and diploma graduates from different technical institutions in the country. The rising demand for participatory project planning experts in other sectors has also inspired the Institute to establish the Bachelor’s degree programme in Participatory Project Planning and Management (BPPM).
