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 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.

Course intended learning outcomes

A.0 Engineering and IT take place within the larger context of society and the environment, which encompasses social, economic and sustainability needs.

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.

Eligibility for admission does not guarantee offer of a place.

International students

International students admitted in courses offered offshore are not eligible for a student visa to study in Australia.

Credit recognition

All applicants are assessed individually for credit recognition, up to a maximum of 24 credit points, based on relevant tertiary qualification(s) and/or evidence of learning outcomes demonstrated through appropriate work experience.

Course duration and attendance

With 24 credit points of credit recognition applied, the course duration is 1.3 years of part-time study if two subjects are taken per teaching period (the Chinese academic year is broken into three sessions). The program is structured for block mode attendance.

Course structure

Students complete coursework subjects and an independent engineering graduate project totalling 48 credit points after credit recognition has been applied. The project component is typically undertaken in the last session of study.
