Overview

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 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.

Career options

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.

Admission requirements

Applicants must have completed a UTS recognised bachelor's degree, or an equivalent or higher qualification, or submitted other evidence of general and professional qualifications that demonstrates potential to pursue graduate studies.

It is a requirement that the bachelor's degree was completed with a minimum weighted average mark of 60 and no more than 25 per cent of subjects failed.

The English proficiency requirement for international students or local applicants with international qualifications is: Academic IELTS: 6.5 overall with a writing score of 6.0; or TOEFL: paper based: 550-583 overall with TWE of 4.5, internet based: 79-93 overall with a writing score of 21; or AE5: Pass; or PTE: 58-64; or CAE: 176-184.

Eligibility for admission does not guarantee offer of a place.

International students

Visa requirement: To obtain a student visa to study in Australia, international students must enrol full time and on campus. Australian student visa regulations also require international students studying on student visas to complete the course within the standard full-time duration. Students can extend their courses only in exceptional circumstances.

Credit recognition

All applicants are assessed individually for credit recognition, up to a maximum of 24 credit points, based on relevant tertiary qualification(s). Applicants given maximum credit recognition complete the course in one year, full time or two years, part time.

Course duration and attendance

This course is offered on a one-year, full-time or two-year, part-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 or three-year, part-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.

Course structure

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.
