Engineering management - the art and science of planning, organising, allocating resources, directing and controlling activities which have a technical component, is rapidly becoming recognised as a professional discipline. Engineering managers are distinguished from other managers by the fact that they possess both the ability to apply engineering principles, and the skills in which to organise and lead people with technical and non-technical priorities. The Master of Engineering Management program is designed to: Assist in the transition to a softer spectrum of skills by offering courses covering theories and applications of motivational needs, management styles, interpersonal skills, and systems approach; Develop leadership and communication potential; and Strengthen engineering skills by offering unique and cutting edge engineering courses covering a range of areas of interest including mechanical, civil, chemical, electrical and software engineering.
