Want a career in the IT, engineering, manufacturing, construction or nuclear industries?
You’ll learn about the foundations of project management, the business environment and develop your skills in using project management techniques and software – so you can graduate career-ready.
The course also focuses on your personal development with opportunities to improve your communication and leadership skills to develop the confidence you’ll need as a practising project manager.
Project management involves the planning and organization of a company’s resources to move a specific task, event, or duty towards completion. It can involve a one-time project or an ongoing activity, and resources managed include personnel, finances, technology, and intellectual property.
Project management is often associated with fields in engineering and construction and, more lately, healthcare and information technology (IT), which typically have a complex set of components that have to be completed and assembled in a set fashion to create a functioning product.
No matter what the industry is, the project manager tends to have roughly the same job: to help define the goals and objectives of the project and determine when the various project components are to be completed and by whom. They also create quality control checks to ensure completed components meet a certain standard.
This course has been designed with employers in mind and the majority of students on the course will be working in a project-related role. To enable employed people to study the course successfully alongside their jobs, the delivery of lectures and learning material is typically scheduled in a day-release model, with a single day of intensive engagement each week supported with additional online materials. Students who are not currently working will get the benefit of studying alongside practising project professionals as well as having the flexibility in their weekly calendar to seek employment or to fully dedicate their time to their studies.
