Course aim

To provide students with the opportunity to demonstrate an advanced and integrated understanding of a complex body of knowledge in a real-world, industry or professional project management context.

Course content

Students will work in teams to generate an integrated project proposal, project charter and comprehensive project management plan for an actual or hypothetical project from industry or professional practice.

Students will record their experiences, relating them to the theoretical principles and professional practices observed in the workplace. Students will then be asked to reflect on their experiential learning and to report this experience back to their peers.

This unit will consolidate student's learning by reflecting, analysing, documenting and communicating their experiences and through generation of key project management documents that will have life-long value in the world of practice.
