ENGG2851: Data Analytics for Project Management (2016 - Semester 1)
|Unit:||ENGG2851: Data Analytics for Project Management (6 CP)|
Dr Piraveenan, Mahendrarajah
|Session options:||Semester 1|
|Versions for this Unit:|
|Pre-Requisites:||ENGG1850 AND (MATH1001 OR MATH1901) AND (MATH1002 OR MATH1902) AND (MATH1003 OR MATH1903) AND (MATH1005 OR MATH1905).|
|Brief Handbook Description:||Project Management Data analytics (DA) provides extensive coverage related to examining raw data with the purpose of drawing conclusions about that information. It is used in many industries to allow companies and organization to make better business decisions and in the sciences to verify or disprove existing models or theories. Here, we focus our effort on providing in-depth knowledge and skills to students focusing on inference, process of deriving a conclusion based solely on what is already known by the project manager.|

Learning outcomes are the key abilities and knowledge that will be assessed in this unit. They are listed according to the course goal supported by each. See Assessment Tab for details how each outcome is assessed.Project Methods (Level 3)
* means this assessment must be repeated or will be replaced with a different assessment if missed due to special consideration.
Late submissions will incur a penalty of 10% per day for up to 7 days starting directly after the cut off time. This means 10% will be deducted even if submitted on the due day but after the cut-off time. After one week, assessments will no longer be marked and receive a 0 mark.
IMPORTANT: There may be statistically defensible moderation when combining the marks from each component to ensure consistency of marking between markers, and alignment of final grades with unit outcomes.
