Gain in depth knowledge in a particular area of study by choosing a specialisation in either civil engineering science, built environment or software.
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, 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.
Within the Bachelor of Project Management there are three streams available, all of which contain a capstone project where you will work in a team to initiate, plan, execute, control and close an industry-style project:
- Built Environment – The built environment stream provides a broad foundation in architecture and the built environment, covering aspects such as city form and development, property, construction and sustainable architecture practice.
- Civil Engineering Science - The civil engineering science stream provides a broad foundation in civil engineering, covering areas such as structural mechanics, transport systems, engineering construction and surveying, while also providing scope for you to specialise in areas of your interest.
- Software - The software stream provides a broad foundation in the application of learning to the computer and IT industry, covering areas such as data structures, systems analysis and modelling, and e-business analysis and design.
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.
