This course will equip you with the skills required to cope with the complexities of executing infrastructure projects, with a particular focus on transport infrastructure. It is built around the technical and managerial aspects of working efficiently in an environment with multiple stakeholders, who often have competing demands for shared resources.
There are also diverse physical obstacles and managerial and legal constraints to account for. Operating in difficult terrain where public safety and the day-to-day operation of existing infrastructure assets, must also be taken into account.
This course will review case studies that highlight challenges and will demonstrate how digital platforms and technologies can be adapted to successfully execute infrastructure projects, with minimum disruption.
A team consisting of academics, industry professionals and infrastructure sector leaders will contribute to teaching the course. The industry leaders will come from both government sources and major contractors of infrastructure projects, who will provide a vision of where the industry is heading and exchange ideas about challenges faced and the future of the sector.
The course requires four hours of pre-reading to understand the basic concepts of planning and control of infrastructure projects. This will be followed by four days of block-mode workshops, using case-based learning. Participants will also be engaged in group work and class discussions, in order to learn from each other.
The course will cover the following content:
Day one: Infrastructure procurement
Day two: Planning for infrastructure construction and managing interruptions
Day three: Intelligent and real-time project control
Day four: Site tour
Preferably a minimum of 3-5 years of experience in any sector of the construction industry OR, at least a Bachelor degree in Engineering, Architecture, or Construction Project Management. Experience in the manufacturing sector may also be considered.
