Possible changes to your unit's learning activities and assessment items

For the remainder of 2020, resulting from Australian Government's directives requiring physical distancing and restrictions on movement because of the COVID-19 pandemic, any exams that are required for assessment in a unit will be online exams. Online exams may also use online proctoring to help assure the academic integrity of those exams. Please contact your unit convener with any questions.

While the University has made efforts to ensure that Unit Outlines reflect a unit’s learning activities and assessment items, any changes to Australian Government directives because of the COVID-19 pandemic may require changes to these during the semester to ensure the safety and well being of students and staff. These changes will not be updated in the published unit outline, but will be communicated to you via your unit’s UCLearn(Canvas) teaching site. Any changes made will continue to meet the unit’s learning outcomes, as described in the Unit Outline.

Managing technology is a powerful tool companies use to compete in an increasingly challenging global economy. This unit introduces students to management principles required to develop technologies into products. As industry becomes increasingly 'project-focused', employers are seeking engineers who possess strong project management knowledge, skills and capabilities in line with sustainable principles and ethical standards. The unit weaves contemporary theory with successful practices for an understandable, integrated presentation that focuses on the concepts, tools, and techniques that are most effective for today. Engineering ethics, leadership, globalization, risk analysis and quality assurance aspects of project management and engineering practice are presented to successfully transition students from formal education to professional practice.

This unit is co-taught with Technology and Engineering Management PG, 9784.
