Master of Engineering Studies
“I work as a technical expert at Telstra with cellular mobile platforms. I started with this company in 1982 as a trainee technical officer, so felt a need to pursue further studies to extend my knowledge with up-to-date practical information. I found the UTS degree a perfect fit and there were no barriers as a result of the long gap between my studies. I started with the UTS Graduate Certificate in Engineering and then progressed to the Masters Degree program, finding the transition far less onerous than I expected! I’ve been able to apply what I learnt in the course to my job and workplace.”
Master of Engineering Management
“Having increasingly gained more responsibility in my professional life. I needed to understand project and team management in greater detail, as well as how to prepare financial statements and valuations for engineering projects, ensure product quality etc. I also needed a better understanding of how best to communicate to non-engineers. The choice of subjects offered in the UTS Master of Engineering Management course perfectly filled these gaps. I now have more than just the technical engineering point of view, which has increased my value to my employer.”
