You will explore the best methods for optimising supply chain relationships and the logistics of production, including considerations from an engineering perspective.

Core studies include the essentials of project management, product development, operations management and resource integration management.

We also introduce you to other relevant topics including industrial relations, human resources and finance and management accounting.

If you complete one additional course Advanced Project Management (AMPM700) and choose Introduction to Finance (AMIF603) as your elective option, you will graduate with two graduate diplomas - the Graduate Diploma in Operations and Production Management and the Graduate Diploma in Project Management, provided that your industry project reflects both fields of study.
