Sound project planning and management is a key aspect of the CEED Program.

Students are given training in project planning and management at the start of their projects (during their CEED induction), and guided through the development of a comprehensive project plan/proposal.  The project plan (including Gantt chart) is developed by the student in the first 2-3 weeks of the project, in consultation with their company and university supervisors, and CEED.  The project plan then becomes a roadmap for the student, and a useful management tool for the company supervisor to keep track of the student's progress.

Graham Willett, Program Director, conducts meetings with clients, student inductions and liaises on behalf of clients with university staff, and as required during projects.  A system of student co-supervision (by company and university) ensures that parties are in regular contact throughout the project.

CEED also has an internal Quality Management system in place, which monitors the progress of each student at critical points during their project (from the student and client viewpoint), to ensure that project outcomes and client expectations are met.  CEED provides advice and troubleshooting throughout the project, as required (to students and clients).

CEED consistently achieves a client satisfaction level of 95%+, across all CEED projects.  Since 2004, over 80% of CEED students have been awarded a Grade 6 (Distinction) or Grade 7 (High Distinction)by their University.  These are two of CEED's benchmarks for achieving good quality project outcomes.

CEED Administration

Corporation Technologies Pty Ltd under contract with QUT provides management of the CEED Program, for all participating Universities and their students. Graham Willett, has been the CEED Program Director since 1992 and is dedicated to providing opportunities for the training of senior undergraduate and postgraduate students in an industry environment. Deidre Marczynski joined Corporation Technologies in 2002, as Marketing Manager for the CEED Program.  Deidre was also later appointed a Director.

The Office of Commercial Services at QUT provides administration for CEED Program Qld on behalf of individual Schools at QUT, UQ and USQ.  A committee of industry, university and student representatives co-ordinate the Program under the chair of Mr Colin Melvin, Manager of the Office of Commercial Services at QUT.  The CEED Program Committee meets regularly throughout the year to set and review policy, review the program’s progress and results, seek feedback on issues affecting students, industry and universities, and for CEED to provide feedback to the Universities from students and industry.  This feedback helps to improve the CEED Program for the benefit of all participants.
