Project Management Winter Camp
A career in project management puts you in the driver's seat in virtually any industry, from infrastructure to new product development, to managing change within an organisation or responding to a disaster. You'll be managing resources, people, risk and budgets and these skills will be essential for your projects' success, but how do you get started in this rapidly growing field?
Designed for students in years 10 and 11, our two day intensive workshop will give you a head start in project management and show you where this dynamic field can take you.
Remember the devastating bushfires in the Blue Mountains in 2013? This winter camp is your chance to find out how the emergency services used their project management skills, deploying their crews and resources to bring the situation under control as quickly as possible, saving lives and minimizing property loss.
You'll learn from leaders in the project management industry, who will explain where a career in project management can take you and what degree options can get you there.
You'll also get the chance to try your hand at real-life case studies and have the opportunity to talk to experts in the field.
We'll also throw in a site visit to a leading global IT company to see projects happening in action.
Come along to two fun-filled days and learn the concept of project management as a life skill as well as the importance of systems thinking in tackling complex projects.
