Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) and Master of Project Management in Engineering
CQUniversity - Bundaberg

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 the first year, students will develop skills in problem-solving, teamwork and engineering professional practice together with learning foundational technical content. They will also undertake an authentic industry-based project with work-integrated learning. Students will gain in-depth discipline-specific technical knowledge and skills in the second year. In the third and fourth years of the course, students will develop a deeper understanding of the foundation knowledge they gained in the first and second years. In the fourth and final year, they will choose project management units while completing several engineering projects and apply that knowledge to real-life projects. Students will confirm their 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.
