CM15 - Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)(Major) and Master of Engineering Project Management

Overview

Compulsory Residential School

Some units in this course require you to attend a compulsory Residential School or Work Integrated Learning. Please see Course Features in the Getting Started tab for further information.

Course Overview

The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) and Masters of Engineering Project Management aims to produce an engineer skilled in both high-level engineering designs and managing engineering projects including project planning, stakeholder management, risk management, strategy, resource management, project control, procurement management, and execution. This course has a strong focus on learning in context so you will apply theory to authentic scenarios throughout your course.

In your first year, you will develop skills in problem solving, teamwork and engineering professional practice together with learning foundational technical content. In Term 2 of Year 1, you will undertake an authentic industry based project with work-integrated learning. In the second year, you will gain in-depth discipline-specific technical knowledge and skills. In the third and fourth years of your course, you will develop a deeper understanding of the foundation knowledge that you gained in the first and second year. In fourth and final year while completing a number of engineering project units, students will choose PM units and will apply that knowledge to real life projects .

You will confirm your ability to work as a professional engineer by completing a major individual engineering project, sometimes with an industry mentor, and a project management research project during the fifth year of the course.

Career Information

As a professional engineer, you will create change by developing new technologies and solutions to improve working and living standards for the community while protecting the environment. Professional engineers engage with people from all sections of society. They must listen to societal needs and apply their knowledge of science, technology, mathematics, and engineering standards to design, prototype, implement, operate and maintain solutions to complex problems.

Civil engineers are typically involved in planning, designing and maintaining physical infrastructure systems, including the construction of buildings and bridges, transport and water resource systems, sewage and industrial waste systems, harbours and railways.

Electrical engineers are typically involved in designing, developing and maintaining electrical power and energy systems, including electricity generation and distribution, telecommunications, instrumentation and control, microprocessors and electronics.

Mechanical engineers are typically involved in planning, designing, installing, maintaining and operating machines, thermodynamic and combustion systems, fluid systems, materials handling systems, manufacturing equipment and process plant.

Resource Systems engineers are typically involved with designing, planning and operating mines and mineral and coal processing plants. They specialise in applying contemporary technologies to increase productivity, sustainability and safety of resource industry (mining and mineral processing) operations. In addition, they will work closely with Civil, Electrical and Mechanical engineers to maintain complex facilities.
