    An engineering management role is the long term function of many practising engineers. The need for engineering oriented management skills increases with career development. Many graduate engineers have received only an introduction to management topics at first degree level, some may have had none at all. Undergraduate management training should only be regarded as a base for enhancement of management skills by further advanced study. The Master of Engineering Management program provides a balance between engineering and business skills and is jointly taught by staff from the Department of Civil Engineering and the Curtin Business School in a format that integrates the functions and skills needed by engineers in management.

    Course Entry Requirements/Prerequisites

    A bachelor of engineering or an equivalent qualification in a recognised discipline of engineering with a high aggregate, preferably with at least one year of relevant work experience since graduation.

    Specific Requirements

    Practical engineering experience will be beneficial.

    Recognition of Prior Learning

    Applications for recognition of prior learning are assessed on an individual basis. A student may, under specific circumstances, receive a waiver for a basic unit. In this case the student must substitute an alternative unit approved by the Head of Department. Equivalent units from other institutions may be acceptable if approved by the Head of Department or Course Coordinator.
