Description

Engineers are often asked to realise goals in short time frames which usually have complex components and interdependencies. The success of such a goal is often measured by achieving it on time, what it cost to produce and whether its specifications are met. These goals can also be prerequisites to other larger corporate goals which may also have complex and integral interdependencies together with strict time frames and costs. For engineers to be successful in delivering their parts of projects, an appropriate solution is required (ie agreed quality) as well as delivery (ie on time) to an agreed price (ie to budget).

This subject helps students to achieve this. The subject adopts a holistic view of project management, considering issues throughout a project life cycle. It considers the project responsibilities of engineering managers and organisations, from the definition phase of a project to its conclusion. The perspective of stakeholders, particularly the project manager, are considered. The emphasis is interdisciplinary and relevant to all fields of engineering practice.

Topics include: modern project management practices; project delivery; definition, timing, costing and planning; managing risk and scheduling resources; teams and inter-organisational relationships; progress and performance; and project measurement and evaluation. This compulsory core engineering subject involves relevant, practice-oriented assessment tasks.
