Description

This subject involves a capstone project that provides students with the opportunity to demonstrate and integrate the professional knowledge and skills that they have acquired through their course. Students work in groups to go through the process of procuring a project from inception to completion and cover the commissioning stages. Students are expected to demonstrate a professional level of preparation, planning, execution, testing and documentation for the project and meet a number of strictly enforced milestones. They need to demonstrate proactive initiatives in overcoming problems associated with the project. The subject brings together the processes of project management as defined by the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) and their interaction in a project life cycle. Project initiation is explored including strategic objectives and justification, stakeholder-needs analysis, and development and evaluation of alternatives. Students address the practical application of project planning, executing, controlling and closing processes. This incorporates the integration of project scope, time, cost, quality, risk, procurement and facilitating processes. Emphasis is placed on effective project teamwork and communication.
