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.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.

Prospective or current student concerned about their ability to meet these requirements should discuss their concerns with the Academic Liaison Officer in their faculty or school and/or UTS Accessibility Service on 9514 1177 or at

UTS will make reasonable adjustments to teaching and learning, assessment, professional experiences, course related work experience and other course activities to facilitate maximum participation by students with disabilities, carer responsibilities, and religious or cultural obligations in their courses.

For course specific information see the Faculty of Engineering & Information Technology Inherent (Essential) Requirements Statement.


International students

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

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. RPL is automatically granted to eligible applicants at the time of admission. No additional application for RPL is required.

Course duration and attendance

With 24 credit points of recognition of prior learning applied, the course duration is 1.0 years of full time study (assuming two subjects are taken per teaching period) (the Hong Kong academic year is broken into four sessions).

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.
