This subject will develop fundamental knowledge in project and program scope planning, evaluation, and change management. Areas covered include project time planning, scheduling and controlling management; project cost estimating, budgeting and financial management; and integration management on building projects. Students will apply theoretical concepts to case studies in the built environment to devise holistic solutions to meeting strategic business objectives.
The subject comprises three elements: research and theory, application, and demonstration. Students are required to develop fundamental theoretical knowledge based on lecture and course materials and a range of online and print resources. Students will then work on applying this knowledge to problems/case studies considered in teams of 4-5. They will also undertake a larger-scale real-life case study project requiring students to devise holistic solutions to scope, time, cost and integration management issues.
Students will work in pre-assigned teams using access to an online team forum. They will discuss ideas, research, problems and issues on a regular basis with the subject coordinator and through participation in team interactions. A general subject discussion forum will also be available for students to raise issues and interact with the rest of the class and the subject coordinator/tutors. All learning materials and activities will be available online. Assessment submissions will be online in electronic format. Teamwork activities will be complemented by individual reports and online presentations allowing students to reflect on and highlight their personal research and contributions to team tasks.
The subject will be delivered using the Blackboard platform, where there will be a discussion forum and file exchange facilities for students to interact with peers as well as tutors and coordinators. The subject will have its own learning materials and resources section. The subject coordinator will provide the relevant learning material or appropriate references on-line for students to access. In addition to this, students will have full access to the University library for both on-the-shelf and electronic resources.
Team Assignments - 60% (3000 words). Individual Final Report & viva presentation - 40% (2000 words).
