Career Opportunities

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

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.

In addition, the program is quality assured by UOW Australia, which is registered with the Tertiary Education Quality and 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.

Program Duration

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.
