Engineers are key players in developing new products and processes and optimizing the efficient use of capital in industrial management. Master of Engineering in Management (MEM) produces engineering, science and related graduates who go on to be entrepreneurs and senior management in international industry. The program, now more than 20 years old, offers a superior education in managing technology integrated with business values.
The MEM is professional in content and is taught from the perspective of a business manager. Many lecturers are drawn from industry. Teaching methods combine case studies, quantitative analysis and simulation with a teamwork-based approach and real-life scenarios developed.
