UTS's Project Management program provides an immersive learning environment for both aspiring and experienced project managers. This course equip 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. At a Master's level, students have the opportunity to develop a specialised skillset by choosing a sub-major in business, construction, engineering, IT, local government management, or health, combining project management disciplines with sector-focused knowledge. 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. UTS academics are at the forefront of project management research, internationally. This breadth of knowledge ensures that students have access to leading-edge thinking applied in both project-specific and organisational contexts. Teaching staff also includes specialist guest lecturers from within UTS and institutions and organisations in Australia and overseas. 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.
