The scope of this unit is engineering project management, i.e., knowledge skills and competencies relevant and commonly required to proficiently manage projects that typically involve or are encountered in professional engineering practice. Accordingly this unit relies extensively on two bodies of professional knowledge; the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®) which is internationally accepted and widely used in the profession of engineering (and others) and the general professional engineering body of knowledge. The unit therefore concentrates on three main concepts: preparation and planning required for a project; the activities associated with managing the project including resource management and human management; and the evaluation of project status and completion.
There is a specific emphasis in this unit on developing knowledge, skills, and competencies required of a graduate (and professionally inexperienced) engineer as required by the profession in Australia and as typically expected by industry-based employers in Australia. Accordingly the unit not only covers the general theories and principles involved in engineering project management but also specific commonly used methods and tools used by professional engineers in engineering project management work such as Gantt Charts, Net Present Value (NPV) analysis of project options, and Microsoft® Project software.
