Project Management Program


Project management is becoming a highly regarded discipline in its own right. ‘On-the-job’ training alone can no longer meet the needs of organisations or provide the fundamental project management skills required in today’s dynamic and complex environment. Project managers help organisations deliver new products, services and infrastructure. They manage and implement new systems and processes and they effect change within organisations.

This degree is unlike any other project management degree in Australia. Based on a complex systems approach, it uses multidisciplinary theories and methods to investigate a particular phenomenon from a holistic viewpoint. The program covers the fundamentals of project management in an industry context, and will provide you with fundamental project management skills that can be applied across any industry.

Core subjects include project management, project finance, complex project coordination, analytics, statistics, risk management, organisational behaviour and psychology. These subjects are integrated with units of study from your chosen stream from the start of your studies. This degree is also an ideal complement to the Bachelor of Engineering and is offered as a combined degree.

Career opportunities are varied as project management skills are transferable across industries. Graduates will be highly sought after and could work in professional and management roles in property development, 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 an innovative and dynamic approach is required.

The Bachelor of Project Management is offered in three streams:

  • The Built Environment stream typically focuses on the Architectural field.
  • The stream of Civil Engineering Science typically focuses on the civil engineering field.
  • Software Engineering Science focuses on the application of learning to the Computer and IT industry.
