If you are looking to start a new career in project management, or have recently graduated and not yet gained experience in the field, this two-year course will introduce you to the foundations of the discipline before moving onto more challenging projects later in the course.
The opportunity to study 3-4 elective units will allow you to develop your skills in complementary areas outside of project management (for example: health, science, education or engineering). This is valuable if there is a specific field where you aim to apply your project management skills.
Project management is a distinct professional discipline, having its own body of knowledge, skills, tools and techniques. It involves managing a project from inception to completion and the successful attainment of the project objectives.
The course is applicable to a wide variety of industries such as education, health, commerce, information technology, construction, engineering and research and development. You can select either the Research Stream or the Professional Stream for your final semester.
You will learn the processes and techniques associated with project management, including cost, time, quality, risk, communication, human resources and procurement management. The program will also train you in leadership, team management and motivation.
