The program is well-aligned with industry standards and equips students with the key competencies at the higher end of the profession from initial decision to invest through to operation.
The Master of Engineering Management has been developed in conjunction with Melbourne Business School to offer broader business study opportunities to our students, regardless of their level of work experience.
Students entering the course with less than two years of work experience choose from selected Master of Management subject offerings, while students with greater than two years of experience may undertake subjects from Melbourne Business School’s prestigious MBA subject offerings. Graduates may then be eligible for advanced standing into the Master of Management or MBA degrees, if they choose to continue their business studies.
Engineering managers lead engineering projects and personnel, in a range of technical fields such as product development, manufacturing, construction, design engineering, industrial engineering, software engineering and telecommunications. Your career opportunities will be varied and the skills you develop will be in high demand. Our graduates work in management or consultancy roles in areas such as general management, project management, human resources, finance, quality assurance, education, contract arbitration and policy development within technically-focused organisations.
