This program is designed specifically for engineers who wish to undertake postgraduate management education. It has a focus on management and business specifically relevant to engineering contexts. Students are expected to have a strong technical background and be mathematically literate. The courses in the program contribute to the management of engineering projects, programs and organisations. CQUniversity’s Master of Management for Engineers recognises the knowledge and skills already developed by engineers and expands their competencies further. This program is ideal for engineers seeking professional development or who want to enhance their career opportunities and improve employability.
This program will help you identify and apply appropriate solutions to the management of projects including leadership, management, governance, project management, systems theory and strategic integration. An advantage of studying at CQUniversity is the involvement of professionals from other disciplines (management, business, marketing, accountancy, etc) who use real-world engineering examples as part of their teaching strategies.
Within this program you will study nine core courses in a range of management areas, including: People and Organisations, Organisational Governance and Leadership, Operations Management, Innovation and Sustainable Business Development, Project Management Concepts, and Accountinging for Management Decision Making. You will also have the flexibility of choosing seven courses from any other area offered within the university, allowing you to design your degree around your career aspirations and interests.
On completing a Master of Management for Engineers, you will be qualified to manage engineering projects in industry and government. The acquired knowledge and developed skills may also be applied to areas other than engineering.
