Accelerate your pathway towards a management position with a postgraduate qualification aimed at strengthening your business acumen as a professional engineer. Aimed at professionals, this programme appeals to a broad range of students from different engineering and technological backgrounds intending to pursue management roles. It is a flexible qualification oriented towards enhancing your professional and business capacities for the global market.
This flexible, 120-point taught programme allows you to design a personalised curriculum to suit your circumstances, learning objectives and career aspirations.
The Engineering Management Project (Project M), a compulsory 45-point component, lasts for two semesters. It is a key learning experience of the programme with two options: working directly within a company to solve a business-related problem (this requires consent from a host company); or a case study project that applies research approaches to industry issues.
The remaining 75 points of your degree are built from elective courses from the MEMgt schedule. You may take: three Faculty of Engineering and two Business School courses to pursue an engineering focus; or three Business School and two Faculty of Engineering courses if you’d like to create a business-focused programme.
Where could this programme take you?
The MEMgt offers a distinct career path towards leadership positions. Its industry focus additionally demonstrates your management competence to employers. Unlike generic management qualifications, it focuses directly on issues unique to engineering companies, allowing you to draw from your perspectives as a professional engineer.
