Master of Engineering Management

Postgraduate Degree

Combine your engineering knowledge with management skills, and learn optimal ways to lead teams of engineering specialists.

An engineering manager’s role may focus more on the processes of project realisation and on managing teams, than on technical input. They may also be involved at the beginning stages of a project to determine project feasibility.

The Master of Engineering Management program meets a specific need in industry for engineers with project management competencies who can lead on engineering projects in any sector focusing on both technical excellence and management ability in equal measure. It is jointly taught by staff from the Faculty of Science and Engineering and the Faculty of Business and Law. This course is suitable for those who are seeking better career opportunities and promotions in the field of engineering or are looking to establish their own engineering firm.

The format of the course has kept up with industry needs and trends since its inception, and the coursework is relevant to all engineering disciplines. It integrates the functions and skills needed by engineers in management, and successful completion prepares you for high-level leadership in engineering and technology companies across Australia and around the world.
