Engineering: Systems, Management and Leadership



The subject introduces project management principles and tools. Students develop an understanding of management practices and their application to the successful performance of engineering projects and engineering works. What students learn in this subject enhances their ability to make and implement decisions for strategic and operational management within an engineering setting.

This subject is offered in two modes: standard and distance.

  • In standard mode, students are expected to attend lectures and participate in class and group activities. Classes are three hours per week for one session. Students are expected to enrol and remain in a particular session all session.
  • In distance mode, students undertake the subject without attending classes thus enabling those who would have difficulty attending, for geographic or other reasons, to undertake the study of the subject.

The subject’s learning objectives and content are the same for both modes. There are, however, some differences in emphasis and assignment work because of the specific nature and constraints presented by the distance mode such as participating in presentations to staff and peers. While these aspects are mandatory for students participating in standard mode, they are not required for distance mode students.

The subject outline must be read in conjunction with any subject instructions posted on UTSOnline in any specific session. The instructions provide additional information and advice on any facet of the subject content, its administration and students' obligations.

Students are expected to regularly check the UTSOnline page of the subject.
