Abstract

This paper outlines the development and delivery of a bilingual course in project management for Indonesian nationals comprising of two-days of face to face lectures linked to a distant education program. The course was pilot tested on 28 Indonesian employees on a large mining operations in East Kalimantan, Indonesia. If the course proved in matching in-country and organisational needs then a sustainable training program would be established and modelled using it as a base. The paper provides the background to the development and delivery of the course and its innovative approach to engineering management education in Indonesia. It outlines the course's development phylosophy, the stakeholders invloved and provides a summary of development surveys, including students performances and their responses to training sessions. The practical aspects of adapting course materials into Indonesian context are discussed, along with lessons learned throughot the course development
