MetadataShow full item record
The results of an Internship in a matrix management environment during the period January 1980 to December 1980 at Texas A&M University and the Texas A&M Research Foundation are presented to partially satisfy requirements of the Doctor of Engineering Degree at Texas A&M University. The job was to manage the administrative, logistical, fiscal, and scientific work efforts of several oceanographic contracts, to manage resources (i.e. manpower or personnel, materials or supplies, machinery or equipment, methods or techniques, monies or funds, subcontractors or services, space or facilities, data or information, and time) and to insure accomplishment of timely, efficient, and competent contractual results. The contracts were with the U.S. Department of Interior, Bureau of Land Management, and required the collection of geological, biological, chemical, physical, and geophysical oceanographic data and samples, the reduction, analysis, and integration of data, and the synthesis and reporting of timely information for oil and gas offshore leasing decisions. Internship objectives were satisfied by completing industrial engineering, project management, and other professional tasks.
