Abstract

A group of lecturers are proposing changing traditional education based graduate project management courses to a new research based project management program. The transformation is being tested on the Risk Management course, the Assessment, Monitoring, and Evaluation course, the Quality Control/Safety course, and the Procurement course. The new model will propose the following changes: 1) use construction industry structure to differentiate between efficient and non-efficient environments, 2) use deductive logic, simplicity, and dominant information to supersede traditional education on current practices, 3) utilize the graduate students as a resource instead of a traditional student, 4) integrate research proposals/results into the class material to provide continuity; 5) turn the program into a proactive value added program instead of a reactive educational program; 6) have a strategic plan to assist industry organizations to change.
