What will I learn?
UTS's Project Management program provides an immersive learning environment for both aspiring and experienced project managers. This course equips students with the underlying knowledge and practical experience that drive project delivery across all industry sectors, from construction to information technology.
The UTS program was the first Australian program to be accredited by the Project Management Institute's (PMI) Global Accreditation Centre. The foundation subjects are compatible with the structures used by the PMI and Australian Institute of Project Management (AIPM) to certify practitioners.
To cater for busy work schedules, UTS delivers classes in an intensive block mode. This creates an immersive experience where students work with their peers in a team-based, simulated project environment.
Students also gain practical experience by working on real-life projects, in the classroom, on site or using computer simulations. For example, students have recently developed project plans for the Jack Thompson Foundation, Complimentary Health Care Council of Australia (CHC), and a number of industry associations.
Graduates possess a detailed understanding of just how project management directly improves business productivity and profitability. They are able to deliver projects that help organisations achieve their strategic objectives.
Successful graduates of the course can:
Select from and apply a broad range of tools and methods used to manage projects
Demonstrate an understanding of reflective practice
Exhibit an understanding of the application of ethical principles to project management practice in a variety of settings both in Australia and internationally
Demonstrate an understanding of communication in a variety of forms across culturally diverse project contexts
Understand appropriate information systems for application within a project management context
Understand principles involved in managing relationships between key project stakeholders

Apply foundation-level skills to problem analysis and decision-making
Apply critical thinking and creative problem-solving skills to project management contexts

Graduates from the project management program at UTS can establish careers as project managers, and specialise in sectors through sub-majors (master's only). The knowledge gained from the program equips graduates to improve their skill set to manage projects as part of their current position, and move into senior, director-level positions.
