Master of Engineering Management
Our courses in engineering management provide engineers and scientists with the skills needed at the management level of technology-based enterprises, plus the financial, investment, evaluation and business skills necessary to operate in diverse areas.
You 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. You will be taught by engineers and managers from major engineering companies and government, ensuring a 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.
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. 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.
