Master of Engineering Management

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 should only be regarded as a base for enhancement of management skills by further advanced study. The Master of Engineering Management program provides a balance between engineering and business skills and is jointly taught by staff from the Department of Civil Engineering and the Curtin Business School in a format that integrates the functions and skills needed by engineers in management. This masters program is a joint undertaking between the Department of Civil Engineering/Faculty of Science and Engineering and the Graduate School of Business. 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.
