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.
The need for engineering talent is apparent in the rapid increase in large-scale construction projects underway throughout the Region. There is a strong demand for engineering professionals and a wealth of opportunities for those who combine both technical and managerial expertise. Students and graduates of the MEM typically work across a range of engineering disciplines (chemical, civil, electrical, environmental, industrial, material, mechanical, software and structural) in roles such as:
- Engineering Managers
- Senior Engineers
- Plant Managers
- Engineering Supervisors
- System Engineer
- Project Managers
- Lead Field Engineers
- Process Engineers
Accreditation and Recognition
This program is accredited by the UAE Ministry of Education - Higher Education Affairs and is fully recognised within the UAE, GCC nations and internationally for further education and employment in the private and public sectors.
In addition, the program is quality assured by UOW, which is registered with the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA), the national regulator of the higher education sector in Australia. UOWD graduates have the opportunity to exchange their UOWD degree for the equivalent UOW Australia degree after completion.
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 and structure
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, which consists of 13 teaching weeks. Each subject requires one evening of attendance per week and classes are held 6:00pm - 9:30pm, Saturday - Thursday.
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:
|Subject Code||Subject Title|
