Details

This course offers a qualification to practising engineers in management with advanced engineering skills and knowledge. It will provide analytical tools and methods required to improve operational efficiencies, typically within manufacturing and service organisations.

Graduates will gain technical skills in quality control and improvement, organisational infrastructure management (transportation, water, energy, buildings and telecommunications), and the development of decision support systems.

Students will learn an integrated computer-based approach to monitor and manage internal and external resources of an organisation, including tangible assets, financial resources, materials and human resources. This approach facilitates the flow of information between all business functions inside the organisation and manages connections to outside stakeholders.

Students will acquire knowledge in a range of strategies and practices used in an organisation to identify, create, represent, distribute and enable adoption of insights and experiences. These practices focus on organisational objectives such as competitive advantages, innovation, the sharing of lessons learned, integration and continuous improvement of the organisation.

Career outcomes

The Master of Engineering Management allows graduates to become specialist engineering managers within their chosen professional field, particularly to become leaders and managers of engineering processes. Graduates can also use the skills and knowledge gained to diversify their capabilities across a broader spectrum of engineering disciplines.

Graduates from this masters will be capable of undertaking management-level roles in operations management, quality control management, logistics, supply chain management and other specialised engineering fields.
