Stellenbosch University Faculty of Engineering is proud to announce the launch of an exciting new hybrid Masters Degree in Engineering Management, specifically designed to equip early to mid-career engineers and scientists with the skills they require to manage engineering, technology, innovation, strategy, projects, people and places.
The Masters Degree in Engineering Management (MEM) is a structured, module-based online masters degree in engineering management, specifically designed to prepare early to mid-career engineers of all disciplines and scientists to excel in their current roles, but also to build meaningful careers that will empower them to shape the future.
Engineers and scientists typically take on leadership and management responsibilities early in their careers. Their undergraduate engineering and science degrees focus mainly on the scientific and engineering principles and how to apply them in order to solve technical and scientific problems. The MEM enhances the undergraduate education by not only equipping young engineers and scientists with the management and leadership skills that their current workplace demands, but also to create the workplace of the future and to provide the management foundations for an exceptional career.
The curriculum is future-focused, innovative, industry-relevant and designed to suit the profile of the part-time student, wherever in the world the student may be. The MEM programme is hosted in the Department of Industrial Engineering.
