Master of Engineering Management (MEM)

The Master of Engineering Management (MEM) program is for engineering graduates who are looking to enhance their skills and competencies to manage teams effectively, understand managers from other disciplines and to enable them to use their technical skills to support decision-making processes in complex engineering challenges.

The program will enable you to successfully integrate technical and project management skills, while optimising the use of personnel, resources, equipment and information to deliver engineering projects. The program focuses on helping you develop and demonstrate creative, analytical and conceptual skills to analyse, diagnose and execute strategic judgements across all engineering functions.

Engineering Project Management is a core subject in the MEM program and taking this module satisfies one of the key application criteria for the Project Management Professional (PMP) qualification. Students who pass the program can use this subject as evidence of their 35 hours of project management education.

Program Duration

There are two entry levels to the Master of Engineering Management program. If you have completed a three year undergraduate degree program, or a four year program without a research component, you will enter the MEM at the foundation level. This will involve taking two engineering subjects prior to starting out on the main program. If you have completed a four year degree that included a research component, you will enter directly onto the main program.

If you enter the program at the foundation level you will complete 12 subjects in total. If you go directly to the core program, you will complete 10 subjects. Students typically complete two subjects in a semester. Each subject requires one evening of attendance per week and classes are held 6:00pm - 10:00pm, Saturday - Thursday.

Program Structure


Foundation level students will complete two additional subjects which will be decided in consultation with the Faculty. 

All students will complete the following subjects that form the core of the MEM program:
