The Master of Engineering Management is a 72-unit program offered by the College of Science and Engineering. This course articulates with the 18-unit Graduate Certificate in Engineering Management and the 36-unit Graduate Diploma in Engineering Management, and the sequentially developed topics allow progression through the three awards.
Students who have completed a relevant Washington Accord accredited Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) or have passed the same topics in a Flinders University Master of Engineering Science may receive up to 36 units of credit towards the Master of Engineering Management.
Applicants must either:
- hold a degree or equivalent qualification from an approved tertiary institution OR
- hold the Flinders Graduate Certificate or Graduate Diploma in Engineering Management
The Dean (Education) may, under certain circumstances and subject to specific conditions, admit others who can show evidence of fitness for candidature.
The course provides graduates with advanced study in both the theoretical and the practical aspects of engineering management that builds on a student's previous knowledge and experience. It provides graduates with the ability to critically analyse and evaluate information and solve complex engineering management problems, preparing them for future roles as engineering managers.
Engineering managers are required to manage and articulate solutions with regard to a strong professional and ethical position and to do that they need well developed written and oral communication skills and an ability to continue to learn and adapt. This course provides these skills.
On completion of this course you will be able to:
- critically evaluate engineering management problems and use professional skills and knowledge in managing the systematic development of complex engineering systems
- communicate effectively with other management and engineering professionals using a wide range of communication technologies
- plan solutions using accounting, financial management, human resource management and marketing knowledge and skills
- make use of management fundamentals to manage teams able to accomplish solutions appropriate to the social, political, international, economic and environmental contexts in which they are applied
- apply financial management techniques and analytical skills to the operations and strategic management of their organisations
- evaluate and select appropriate contemporary strategic management practices as they apply to engineering problems
- plan and execute a research project, applying relevant methodologies and knowledge
