Masters of Engineering Management (MEM)

Hosted within the Department of Industrial Engineering, the Masters degree of Engineering Management (MEM) may either be taken full – or part time, and the student can anticipate being part of a broader engineering ‘eco-system’ within the well-established home in the Faculty of Engineering.  The hybrid delivery mode ensures that students, particularly working professionals, will also be able to benefit from flexible, self-paced study as well as the synchronised sessions.

The degree may be of particular interest to students with trans/interdisciplinary interests. Emerging technologies (which is one the focus areas of the degree) are important drivers for new and emerging professions. The course presenters have extensive experience and have researched extensively to meet the current demand for innovation management especially for young managers in engineering science graduates who are moving into engineering/scientific management roles and are taking on associated management responsibilities, and seek the formal education required to support them in undertaking these tasks.
