This is a core unit out of a total of 6 units in the Graduate Diploma of Networking (GDNet) and 12 units in Master of Networking (MNet) / Master of Engineering (Telecommunications) (MEng(Tel)). This unit addresses the MNet and MEng(Tel) course learning outcomes and complements other courses in a related field by developing students’ knowledge ICT project management. For further course information refer to: http://www.mit.edu.au/study-with-us/programs/master-networking, http://www.mit.edu.au/study-with-us/programs/master-engineering-telecommunications and http://www.mit.edu.au/study-with-us/programs/graduate-diploma-networking. This unit is part of the AQF Level 8 (GDNet) and level 9 (MNet and MEng (Tel)) courses.
This unit provides students with the knowledge and skills to effectively manage networking projects. It covers professional practice in the context of networking projects. The unit employs case studies and follows projects from conception through to completion. It covers the key knowledge areas identified by the project management body of knowledge (PMBOK) developed by the Project Management Institute.
The unit enhances knowledge, and uses in-depth analysis of common issues/risks that project team members often face and strategies to mitigate these issues/risks. This unit helps students to learn about how project characteristics and management differs in the context of current enterprise case studies.
This unit will cover the following topics:
On successful completion of this unit, students should be able to:

MIT is committed to ensure the course is current, practical and relevant so that graduates are “work ready” and equipped for life-long learning. In order to accomplish this, the MIT Graduate Attributes identify the required knowledge, skills and attributes that prepare students for the industry.
The level to which Graduate Attributes covered in this unit are as follows:
|Ability to communicate||Independent and Lifelong Learning||Ethics||Analytical and Problem Solving||Cultural and Global Awareness||Teamwork Cooperation, Participation and Leadership||Specialist knowledge of a field of study|
|The standard is covered by theory and practice, and addressed by assessed activities in which the students always play an active role, e.g. workshops, lab submissions, assignments, demonstrations, tests, examinations|
|The standard is covered by theory or practice, and addressed by assessed activities in which the students mostly play an active role, e.g. discussions, reading, intepreting documents, tests, examinations|
|The standard is discussed in theory or practice; it is addressed by assessed activities in which the students may play an active role, e.g. lectures and discussions, reading, interpretation, workshops, presentations|
|The standard is presented as a side issue in theory or practice; it is not specifically assessed, but it is addressed by activities such as lectures or tutorials|
|The standard is not considered, there is no theory or practice or activities associated with this standard|
