Curtin University

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Postgraduate
CRICOS: 00301J

An engineering management role is the long-term function of many practising engineers. The need for engineering oriented management skills increases with career development. Many graduate engineers have received only an introduction to management topics at first degree level, some may have had none at all. Undergraduate management training provides a base, with an enhancement of management skills achieved by further post-graduate advanced study. The Master of Engineering Management program provides a balance between engineering and business skills and is jointly taught by staff from the School of Civil and Mechanical Engineering and the Faculty of Business and Law in a format that integrates the functions and skills needed by engineers in management. The engineer in a managerial role in industry has to utilise a broad range of skills and competencies which are essential to the planning, coordination and control of engineering projects, contracts and plant. Curtin University’s Master of Engineering Management provides an ideal pathway for practising engineers into senior-management roles.
