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

Course outline

This course 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 your first year, you will develop skills in problem solving, teamwork and professional practice together with learning foundational technical content. In the second year, you will gain in-depth discipline-specific technical knowledge and skills and build on your project management skills. In the third, fourth and fifth years of your course, you will develop a deeper understanding of the foundation knowledge that you gained in the 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. For more information, visit the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) and Diploma of Project Management course page at CQU.
