Course Description

Unlike any other project management degree in Australia, this course will provide you with the fundamental project management skills, theories and methods required to succeed in today's complex business environment.

Subjects include project finance, statistics, analytics, risk management, organisational behaviour and psychology.

Project managers help organisations deliver new products, services and infrastructure. They manage and implement new systems and processes and they effect change within organisations. Working within an industry context, this degree covers the fundamentals of project management from basic theory to technical application in real-world environments.

Your lectures and tutorials will be led by expert academics and adopt a complex systems approach - utilising multidisciplinary theories and methods to investigate a particular phenomenon from a holistic viewpoint. The skills you learn will be applicable and valuable across almost any industry.

Graduates are highly sought after and work in professional and management roles in property development, events, construction, mining, IT, banking and finance, state or federal government or in consultancy roles in the engineering, water, health or energy sector.

Project management skills and methodologies can be applied to a variety of situations, including disease and disaster recovery scenarios where innovative and dynamic approaches are required to marshal resources to achieve an end goal.

This degree is also an ideal complement to the Bachelor of Engineering and is offered as a combined degree: Bachelor of Engineering Honours and Bachelor of Project Management.
