Master of Science in

ENGINEERING MANAGEMENT

Degree Overview

The MS in Engineering Management is designed for graduate engineers aspiring to work in a management role and need to extend their knowledge beyond their technical field into management and business.

Linking business expertise with engineering and sustainable development issues this course concentrates on key areas of modern management required by engineers. Our students develop communication skills necessary to lead multi-disciplinary teams and gain the ability to translate customer needs into new engineering technologies. The course gives better understanding of project management, finance, technical sales & marketing, law for engineers, decision-making under uncertainty. Our program focuses on creating leaders who can adapt to dynamic business environments.

Minimum Admissions Requirements for this Program

Applicants must have a full qualification at MQF level 6 in Information Technology/Computer Science/Engineering bachelor's program or a related discipline (e.g., applied physics or mathematics).

Students are expected to have undergraduate training in computer programming, software development, the basic concept of algorithm or mathematical modelling.

Specifically, all incoming students are expected to meet the following fundamental requirements:

(1) general knowledge of science, engineering science at his undergraduate degree,

(2) complete at least one course of computing/programming (e.g., an introductory module using a high-level language such as Java, C++, C#, Visual Basic, C, or Python) at his undergraduate degree.

Most undergraduate programs in science and engineering provide the necessary background. Students deficient in one or more of these areas may be admitted into the MS program on Provisional Status. Advancement to Regular Graduate Status will not be considered until all deficiencies have been rectified.

Admission is based on evaluation of the applicant's letter of intent, undergraduate transcript, IELTS or TOEFL score, letters of recommendation, and professional experience (if any). Applicants are expected to have an undergraduate CGPA of 3.00 at 4.00 scale on the last 60 units (120 ECTS) of his/her assessment.

PROGRAM LEARNING OUTCOMES

The MS Engineering Management degree program is intended to produce graduates who are able to assume management responsibility in technology based organizations. This Program is in response to student and employer demand for a Program to teach management skills to graduate engineers with little or no background in business related knowledge. 

Students completing the program are expected to be able to apply the methodology and tools of this engineering discipline to further their careers into increasing responsible management positions. Most engineers graduate with limited business related skills which limit advancement opportunities in technology based companies. Students are expected to learn technology management skills including financial modeling, technical marketing, law, decision-making under uncertainty, and project management. 

By completion of the MS program in Engineering Management, a student will: 

(a) acquire in-depth knowledge within a particular area of study and complementary knowledge from a related area in Systems and Industrial Engineering 

(b) conduct an original research (formulating a problem, developing a model, and finding a solution based on the analysis)  

(c) effectively communicate ideas and results via written and verbal communication. 

Mode of Delivery & Assessments

h

Assessment

Engineering disciplines require strong mathematics skills.  Assessments (in-class examinations, homework and individual and team projects) will focus on those skills.  In general, grades will be assigned based on performance on those assessments. 

i

Teaching & assessment

The method of teaching is lecture/seminar, and guided projects. The modules will be taught by AUM faculty members. Students will be offered a range of pedagogical experiences, including readings and discussion, lectures, case studies, critical analysis, writing assignments, and projects. The emphasis will vary depending on the subject matter of the module. 

Career Opportunities

Director of Hardware Engineering at a computer design firm. Process Engineering Manager at a car manufacturing plant. Senior Operations/Systems Analyst at a digital technology firm.
