Key activities

In 1988 I joined RMIT first as course leader on the Bachelor of Applied Science in Construction Management and from 1991 to 1998 I was the head of department. I completed a PhD, which was awarded in 1994 after over 6 years of hard work and a hell of a lot of support from my technical supervisor and good friend Professor Tony Sidwell who was also my supervisor in 1978/9 for my Master of Science degree at Aston in the UK. In 2000 I moved location to the Faculty of Business (now called the Business College at RMIT) and later joined the Graduate School of Business. Currently I have returned to work with the DPM in the School of Property, Construction and Project Management at RMIT so that I can contribute to both the Masters and Doctor of Project Management degrees.
