Master des Monats
Der Master of Engineering Management der University of Technology Sydney
The Master of Engineering Management (MEM) is an opportunity for engineers, technical specialists and non-technical professionals to build and stretch their managerial skills and integrate their business and technical knowledge.
The duration of this course is one and a half years, however applicants with a recognised bachelor's degree in engineering are eligible for credit recognition of up to four subjects and are thus able to complete the course in one year on a full-time basis.
The MEM has been specifically designed to emphasise the interface between engineering, technology and management. The integration of carefully tailored coursework and an independent project delivers graduates who understand the professional, societal and environmental context and have developed a range of management and engineering capabilities to respond to it.
Students complete coursework subjects and an independent engineering graduate project, totalling 72 credit points of study. The project component consists of a preparatory subject and a project (in the area of engineering management) and is typically undertaken after completing one session's worth of coursework. Elective subjects are to be chosen from postgraduate subjects offered within the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology; some subjects may require prior approval based on access conditions.
This course is offered on a one-year, full-time basis for applicants with a UTS recognised bachelor's degree in any field. For applicants without recognised qualifications, it is offered on a one-and-a-half-year, full-time basis.
The course is made up of subjects that provide students with flexibility. Classes are usually held in standard mode (weekly attendance) or block mode (attend classes only two or three times during the session per subject). Some subjects may be available in distance mode.
The MEM program provides an opportunity for those who aspire to excellence to challenge themselves at the master's level, deepen their skills and knowledge and gain a competitive edge in the industry.
