Edwards Celebrates 2nd Year UMBC Course Sponsorship

Elkridge Maryland, January 16, 2015  Edwards Performance Solutions (Edwards) recently completed partnering with the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) to assist with an advanced project management project, sponsoring a team of UMBC students. The course, builds on the beginner level project management courses offered by UMBC to expand each student’s hands-on application of project management principles and best practices with a focus on the critical evaluation of project performance. Students participated in the course through the UMBC Engineering Management Graduate Program.

Along with Edwards, other sponsors for this project included: Technology & Telecommunications Consultants, Inc. (TTC), General Dynamics Information Technology (GDIT), PMI – Baltimore Chapter. During the weekly class, students teamed up with a sponsor to work on a specific part of this project.
The purpose of Edwards’ project was to determine a website hosting company and website developing company to refresh our corporate website – on time and on budget. The comprehensive and implementable plan included the detailed activities and resources required to update and host the website.

Edwards is honored to be a part of the next generation of Project Managers and appreciates the hard work and dedication these students have provided to us.
