We have developed this course to help you to maximise your contribution to the contract process, drawing on engineering examples and case studies.
A contract lays out the understanding between buyer and seller. It should do so clearly and unambiguously. Engineering contracts can be among the most complex and demanding that are put in place and often require input from a range of specialists, including engineers, scientists and project managers.
This course is designed to dispel the mystique which surrounds the legally binding contract and to demonstrate that, provided some basic ground rules are followed, an engineer can make an important contribution in a contract negotiation.
The course also helps the technical specialist guide commercial and legal colleagues on what is realistic and possible. Drawing upon engineering examples and case studies, this course will support you to maximise your contribution to the contract process.
Who should attend?
This programme is suitable for engineers and non-engineers at all levels.
How will I benefit?
After the course you will be able to:
- Understand the fundamentals of contract law and intellectual property law to maximise your contribution to the process.
