The vast majority of engineers in the UAE, and around the world, are involved in managing engineering assets. Every day decisions are made that affect the lifecycle cost of a company’s high valued assets and there are increasing expectations to demonstrate competency and transparency in these decisions.
The Master of Engineering Asset Management (MEAM) program has been designed by experts to draw on evolving International Standards and best practice and equip asset managers with the advanced skills necessary to manage property, infrastructure, facilities, physical equipment and other assets through their lifecycle – ensuring they are maintained properly, that new assets are integrated successfully into existing systems, and that these assets continue to generate value throughout their life.
If you are an engineering graduate working in a maintenance engineering position, this program will provide you with the knowledge and skills to create a more competitive, cost-efficient and productive organisation, opening the door to senior management positions. From a strategic framework, you will progressively address problems in the designing and managing of assets throughout the program, evaluating potential solutions to real-life challenges faced by organisations.
As engineering projects in the MENA region reach the next stage in their lifecycle, there is a strong demand for engineering professionals who have a thorough knowledge of asset management best practice. Graduates of the MEAM program typically work in roles such as:
- Business Management
- Risk and Safety Management
- Quality Management
- Management Consultancy
- Asset Management
- Systems Engineering
- Project Management
- Design Management
- Plant and Operations Management
- Maintenance Management
- Procurement Management
- Reliability Engineering
Globally accredited, internationally relevant
Because we’re licensed by the UAE Ministry of Education - Higher Education Affairs, through the Commission of Academic Accreditation, our students and graduates can be assured that our degrees are recognised throughout the UAE and internationally. All programs are also quality assured by UOW Australia, which is registered with the Australian Tertiary Education and Quality Standards Agency (TEQSA), the national regulator of higher education in Australia. Upon graduation, students can choose either a degree certificate from UOWD or a degree certificate from the University of Wollongong Australia.
There are two entry levels to the MEAM program. If you have completed a three-year undergraduate degree program, or a four-year program without a research component, you will enter the MEAM at the foundation level. This will involve taking two subjects prior to starting out on the main program that will be agreed in discussion with the Faculty. If you have completed a four-year degree that included a research component, you will enter directly onto the main program.
If you have completed a UOWD Graduate Certificate in Engineering Asset Management, you will be eligible to complete the program in 6 subjects.
The MEAM program will normally take you five or six semesters to complete (based on three semesters per year with summer as an optional semester and two subjects per semester). At this rate, the degree can be completed in two years or less. Classes are held 6-9:30pm, Sunday to Thursday. Each subject requires one evening of attendance for 13 weeks.
