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 in engineering 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.
