The chance to combine research with practical work experience drew architect Mayuri Kulkarni to the Master of Project Management.
As an architect, I wanted to enhance my skill set in managing construction projects, so I enrolled in the Master of Project Management at RMIT.
I enrolled as an international student, and although I initially struggled to understand the course structure and content, I received constant support from the extremely knowledgeable and motivational staff, which made it much easier to cope. Within a month, I had befriended a great group of people and gained experience in working with diverse teams.
Through practical coursework, site visits and case studies, I’ve learned so much, not just about project management but also related topics like sustainability and risk management. The program structure is extremely versatile and helps students to become industry-ready by the time they graduate.
The principles and ideas we study in the Master of Project Management are used in the construction industry all over the world. My goal is to lead a team of project managers and work in several countries through Asia, Europe and the UK to better understand the global construction industry and different styles of work.
The world is moving towards green cities and net-zero energy buildings. Innovation and sustainability will be the most important aspects of future cities, and project managers will have a huge impact on what communities look like in the future.
