Master of Engineering Management

MASTER OF SCIENCE

The MS in Engineering Management is designed for graduate engineers aspiring to advance into management careers within technological organizations. In a global economy, it is vital for companies to hire and develop new talent that can bridge communication gaps in many contexts. Our students are trained to lead multi-disciplinary teams and translate customer needs into new engineering technologies. In a global context, our students are adept at finding common ground and fostering international ties to create new ideas and perspectives.

Our students gain an understanding of project management, finance, technical sales & marketing, law for engineers, decision-making under uncertainty. Our program focuses on creating leaders who are able to adapt to dynamic business environments.

Undergraduate graduates from an engineering bachelor’s program or in a related discipline (math, physics). These students must be motivated for a challenging masters program curriculum and have a solid English proficiency on admittance.

Employment After Graduation

Engineering management graduates have unlimited career options. The list of positions for which the Engineering Management program prepares students includes quality engineers, technical sales & marketing professionals, project managers, construction managers, and reliability engineers. You will also find them developing and launching successful startup companies and technical consulting firms.

Requirements

To be eligible for admission to the American University of Malta Engineering Management program, you must have:
 
•  Undergraduate training in: mathematics, physics, computing, and mathematical modeling. Specifically, all incoming students are expected to meet the following fundamental requirements:
 
1) four semesters of mathematics, beginning with a two-semester sequence in calculus,
 
2) three semesters of calculus-based physics and general engineering science,
 
3) one semester of computing (e.g., an introductory course using a high-level language such as Java, C++, C#, Visual Basic, C, or Python).
 
•  Most undergraduate programs in science and engineering provide the required background. Students deficient in one or a small number of these areas may be admitted into the MS program on Provisional Status.
 
During the first semester, students who are on Provisional Status will need to take courses to address the deficiencies. As soon as deficiencies are removed, students are advanced to the regular graduate status. 
 
•   Demonstrate satisfactory understanding of Introduction to Probability and Statistics. Admission is based on evaluation of the applicant's letter of intent, undergraduate transcript, IELTS or TOEFL score, letters of recommendation, and professional experience. Applicants are expected to have an undergraduate GPA of 3.00 on the last 60 units of course work, 79 TOEFL or 6.5 IELTS.
