Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Major) and Diploma of Project Management
CQUniversity - Bundaberg

Course outline

CQUniversity’s Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) and Diploma of 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 students will apply theory to authentic scenarios throughout the course.

In the first year, students will develop skills in problem solving, teamwork and professional practice together with learning foundational technical content. In Term 2 of Year 1, students will undertake an authentic industry project with work-integrated learning. The second year allows students to gain in-depth discipline-specific technical knowledge and skills and build on their project management skills. While, the third, fourth and fifth years of the course, will see students develop a deeper understanding of the foundation knowledge gained in their first and second years. Students will also complete three project units where they will work on authentic projects and apply their project management knowledge and skills to deliver them on time.

Students will also complete a major individual project, sometimes with an industry mentor, that integrates both their engineering skills and project management skills to confirm their ability to work as an engineer and a project management specialist.

Note
