Master of Engineering Management
This program equips the engineer or scientist with the skills required at management levels of technology based enterprise.
The Master of Engineering Management is designed to bridge the business knowledge gap between engineering, technology and management. The course provides engineers and scientists with the skills needed at the management level of technology-based enterprise, plus the financial, investment evaluation and business skills necessary to operate in diverse areas of technology. Graduates will gain an understanding of the legal, commercial, marketing and human issues that a manager deals with in a technical environment. Themes covered include: international social systems, the regulatory role of managers, application of software and new technologies relevant to management of technological enterprises; and the social, cultural and environmental responsibilities of managers. The program is taught by engineers and managers from major engineering companies and government, ensuring the depth of pertinent theoretical and practical content. 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.
Students graduate from the program with the skills required for leadership roles and the ability to provide solutions to organisations involved in technology, manufacturing, construction, engineering and production. Careers for graduates of this program are varied and the skills taught are in high demand. Past graduates work in management or consultancy roles in areas such as general management, human resources, finance, marketing, quality assurance, education, contract arbitration and policy development within technically-focused organisations.

Marine Sarthe (France)
Marine Sarthe completed the Master of Engineering Management in one year of full-time study in 2010, following an Industrial Engineering degree studied in France. She decided to come to Australia to study the Master of Engineering Management because she realised she needed more skills in business communication and how to manage people.
I chose to study so far from France, in Australia, because I want an international career and this course offered the chance to study with Australians, Asians and people from other backgrounds. Melbourne Uni has a great reputation which encouraged me to come here. I really enjoy the city of Melbourne because it’s a town full of entertainment. There are a lot of bars and places to go out. There are lots of museums that are free for students and you can easily find different opportunities that are less expensive for students.
