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 recognition of prior learning 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.

Course intended learning outcomes

A.1 Historically and Culturally Informed about Indigenous Knowledge Systems: FEIT graduates are culturally and historically well informed, able to co-design projects as respectful professionals when working in and with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
B.1 Socially Responsible: Master of Engineering Management graduates engage and influence a broad range of diverse stakeholders to develop a shared understanding of values, needs, and priorities. They identify and evaluate performance requirements (such as social, environmental, capital expense, safety, operational, maintenance, and reliability, quality and cost effectiveness) of novel problems.
C.1 Design Oriented: Master of Engineering Management graduates apply design thinking, decision making methodologies and leadership practices to propose management solutions and implementation strategies. They exercise judgement to evaluate and respond to system sustainability, constraints, risks, conflicts and uncertainties (social, economic and environmental).
D.1 Technically Proficient: Master of Engineering Management graduates research and evaluate concepts and theories and synthesise concepts in Management and its different areas of practice (Business, Organisational, Project, Quality, and Human Resource). They predict and judge the impacts of management solutions using ethical, social, commercial and environmental metrics of success.
E.1 Collaborative and Communicative: Master of Engineering Management graduates communicate in a variety of ways (accurate and active listening, dialogue, reading, writing, negotiating and contractually) to coordinate, manage and lead diverse teams and projects. They collaborate formally and informally to engage, influence and manage.
F.1 Reflective: Master of Engineering Management graduates self-review their own competence to practice proficiently, anticipate consequences of intended actions or inaction and identify ethical dilemmas when they arise. They seek and provide constructive reviews to improve themselves, their teams, and management practice.

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 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.

Recognition of prior learning

Applicants who hold a UTS-recognised bachelor's degree (minimum duration of 3 years full-time equivalent) are eligible for 24 credit points of 'unspecified' recognition of prior learning (RPL) based on their undergraduate studies.

  • International applicants: RPL is automatically granted to eligible applicants at the time of admission. No additional application for RPL is required.
  • Domestic applicants: complete the RPL application form and attach it to the application for admission to the course.

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).

Course structure

Students complete coursework subjects and an independent engineering graduate project totalling 72 credit points. The project component consists of a preparatory subject and a project (in the area of engineering management) which must be undertaken in successive sessions, typically the final two sessions of the course.

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.

Course program

The sample program below shows a suggested sequence of subjects for a full-time student commencing the course in Autumn session. The program is intended as a guide only and does not take into account such factors as recognition of prior learning, changes in attendance mode and subject availability, or satisfactory academic progress. Students should consult the Timetable Planner to confirm the availability of subjects in the current academic year.

Note: The project subjects, 42908 and 42003, must be undertaken in successive sessions, typically the final two sessions of the course.
