Infrastructure Management Case Studies (ITLS6502)

UNIT OF STUDY

Effective infrastructure management requires an understanding of the inherently complex and varied nature of infrastructure projects. This unit extends upon and contextualises the knowledge and skills gleaned in other infrastructure units, including, but not limited to decision making, project and risk management, cost benefit analysis, financing, and tendering. The unit provides a particular focus on the complex interactions between the many components of an infrastructure project. The unit is taught through a collection of case studies of many different types of real life infrastructure projects, allowing the specific traits and challenges of each to be explored. Crucially, students will be required to demonstrate critical thinking and effective communication.
