This unit of study is a fourth year core unit of study for the Bachelor of Project Engineering and Management. It is also an elective for other branches of engineering and faculties. The objective of this unit is to provide underpinning knowledge and skills in the application of tools to the project management environment for risk, quality and people management including leading and managing project teams. At the end of this unit, students will be able to understand and apply the tools of team building and project management leadership, as well as apply tools for design and implementation of integrated plans for risk, quality, human resource and procurement. The competency level achieved will enable application of integration tools to a range of simple generic projects as well as provide input to plans for more complex projects. The syllabus comprises team management, project leadership, modern quality management principles and techniques, quality assurance, preparation of quality plans; risk analysis, planning and risk management, as well as linking risk and quality management to human resourcing and procurement methodologies. The use of integrated planning software such as MS Project, Gantt Project and social media tools for project management will be explained and practised. The definitions and processes of Project Management will largely follow the US based Project Management Institutes, PMBOK as is used in the Australian Institution of Project Management Standards at the level of Certified Practising Project Manager, (CPPM).
