Fundamentals of project management is presented in lectures and guest speakers will share their experience ahead of classroom simulations. Stakeholder exercises are a feature of the workshops.

02. Conduct effective and collaborative project team meetings through application of team dynamics knowledge.

Role based simulations are conducted in lab classes whilst theory is delivered in lectures.

03. Create a project management framework for application to Computer Science & Information Technology projects.

Lectures present best practice project management design principles. Case-based examples are examined in lab classes.

04. Critically analyse the security aspects of project development and embed risk mitigation in project management processes.

Lectures present background information, prescribed reading discussed in labs and case studies where security implications were not considered in projects.

05. Formulate comprehensive strategies based on best practice, for modelling, capturing and storing design information in technology projects.

Data management theory and application presented in lectures and labs respectively.
