Bachelor of Project Management


All students in the Bachelor of Project Management are required to choose one major, which may be a Project Management major (below) or may be taken from Table S in the shared pool of majors for Undergraduate Degrees.

Built Environment

A major in Built Environment fosters development of knowledge and professional competencies in the areas of town and city planning, sustainable architectural design, including modes of building delivery and classification. Study areas include the design of building environments and technologies, its evolution, and how it shapes and is influenced by contemporary society. The major also covers understanding of the roles of architects, planners, urban designers and property developers in contributing to urban ecology and its impact on planning, property development and policy.


A major in Construction equips students with knowledge of foundational civil engineering processes, design, tools and techniques such as surveying, and construction issues related to standard materials such as steel, concrete and timber. Study in this major develops one’s project management competencies, such as scheduling, project evaluation, and project and stakeholder acceptance in the context of construction projects. The project management capstone project allows the amalgamation of concepts and theories and the practice of these in a construction-focused context.
