This course is designed specifically for engineers who wish to undertake postgraduate management education. It has a focus on management and business specifically relevant to engineering and other technical specialists. You are expected to have a strong technical background and be mathematically literate. The units in the course contribute to the management of projects, programs and organisations. This course recognises the knowledge and skills already developed by you as engineers and expands your competencies further. This course is ideal for engineers seeking professional development or who want to enhance their career opportunities and improve employability.
In this course you will 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, and accounting) who use real-world engineering examples as part of their teaching strategies.
Within this course you will study a range of management areas, and also have the flexibility to choose electives from other areas 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.
