ICCPM is pleased to announce Belinda Kelly as the 2017 winner of the ICCPM PM Prize. This prize is awarded for academic performance in the Managing Project Complexity subject of the Master of Project Management program at the University of Technology Sydney. Belinda was presented her prize at the 2017 UTS Design, Architecture and Building Prize Giving by ICCPM Director and Fellow, Dr Phil Crosby.
“ICCPM is pleased to join with the University of Technology Sydney in awarding this prize to Belinda to recognise her academic excellence in the Managing Complexity subject of her Master’s Program”, said Deborah Hein, MD/CEO of ICCPM. “Our purpose in sponsoring this specific prize is to encourage and inspire graduates to join with and become some of the best practitioners in the world so that one day they can manage projects of national significance and potentially become a Fellow of ICCPM. We look forward to working with Belinda and will watch with interest as she develops her project management career.”
Belinda Kelly said, “I would like to thank ICCPM for offering the prize, and for the University of Technology Sydney for having such a fascinating subject as part of the Master of Project Management. It was great to meet Dr Crosby and his partner on the award night, and to learn about the Square Kilometre Array telescope mega-project. ICCPM’s support has deepened my interest in complex project management, and this will strongly influence my future career."
The post-graduate project management degrees(link is external) offered at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) are internationally recognised and certified degrees providing a pathway into specialised project management roles, or advancement to project and program director positions. Students have the unique opportunity to develop a specialised skill set by choosing a sub-major in business, construction, engineering, IT, local government management, or health. This approach provides students with the opportunity to combine project management disciplines with sector-focused knowledge. The course incorporates UTS’s block teaching approach, which creates an immersive environment where students work with their peers in a team-based, simulated project environment.
