Description

Engineering management - the art and science of planning, organising, allocating resources, directing and controlling activities which have a technical component, is rapidly becoming recognised as a professional discipline. Engineering managers are distinguished from other managers by the fact that they possess both the ability to apply engineering principles, and the skills in which to organise and lead people with technical and non-technical priorities.

The Master of Engineering Management program is designed to:

  • Assist in the transition to a softer spectrum of skills by offering courses covering theories and applications of motivational needs, management styles, interpersonal skills, and systems approach;
  • Develop leadership and communication potential; and
  • Strengthen engineering skills by offering unique and cutting edge engineering courses covering a range of areas of interest including mechanical, civil, chemical, electrical and software engineering.

Why study with us?

The Master of Engineering Management program is unique because of its flexible structure which is an intrinsic element of its success, appeal, and international recognition.  This statement is made not only on the basis of positive feedback and student enrolments - our program was recently referred to in the highly reputable “Journal of Civil Engineering: The Magazine of The American Society of Civil Engineers” (November 2007, Volume 77, No 11, pp. 54-55).  This journal was the forum for the recent discussion in the USA of “The 21-st Century Engineer: A proposal for Engineering Education Reform” and identified our Masters program as an exemplar of good practice and flexible structure.  As such it advocated that our Master of Engineering Management be used as a model to direct evolutionary changes in engineering education.  We are proud to attract such international acknowledgement and to offer this program to engineers from Australia and internationally.

Study a Language

All domestic students can now enrol in an undergraduate Diploma in Languages alongside their main degree program. This diploma will enhance proficiency in another language or languages, and will increase international career opportunities. Subject to course availability, this additional program will generally add an extra year to studies, and students will graduate with a Diploma in Languages as well as their other degree. Please note that all language courses are held on campus (face to face) at Callaghan.

International students cannot enrol concurrently in the Diploma in Languages alongside their primary program unless they can complete both programs within the duration of their primary program CoE. For more information please contact the ESOS Student Compliance Unit ESOS@newcastle.edu.au.

  • A four year bachelor’s degree in an engineering or cognate discipline (as determined below); or
  • An undergraduate three year degree in an engineering or cognate discipline, and at least two years of documented professional RPL - relevant work experience* since graduation related to the degree.

International Students

All International Students enrolled in the program will be provided with an orientation to familiarise them with the rules, expectations, facilities and services offered by the University. Please visit http://www.newcastle.edu.au/international/while-you-are-here/orientation to find out more about the support services available to international students.

Special Needs

Students with a disability who require reasonable adjustments to undertake their program should contact the Disability Support Service before semester or early in the semester. Some adjustments need up to 4 weeks lead time to organise, so it is imperative that early contact is made. The Disability Support Service and relevant Faculty and School officers will work together to ensure reasonable adjustments are provided in a timely manner.

Please note: All students must fulfil the inherent requirements of the programs and courses they are undertaking. While reasonable adjustments can be made, these adjustments cannot compromise academic integrity. It is the student’s responsibility to check all the requirements of courses, and consider the effects of any medical condition or disability on their ability to complete course requirements. Please visit http://www.newcastle.edu.au/service/disability/ for more information.

Students who have impaired function in their hands or arms, or a visual impairment may have difficulty pursuing aspects of this program. It is highly advisable for any prospective student with such a disability to contact the Faculty to discuss the issue. The Faculty accepts responsibility, in liaison with the student Support Unit, for providing reasonable accommodations to allow students with disabilities to complete the program.

Additional Information

All students can access additional learning development mechanisms provided by the Centre for Teaching and Learning at http://www.newcastle.edu.au/current-staff/teaching-and-research/teaching-resources/supporting-students

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students can draw on the assistance and support provided by the Indigenous Student Support and Development service through The Wollotuka Institute.

Requirements and Structure

The Master of Engineering Management program is structured around a core curriculum and two groups of directed courses.

Core Courses:

  • Three (3) core courses
  • Group A: Management courses; and
  • Group B: Engineering courses.

Students need to complete the following in order to complete their award:

  • 30 units of core courses;
  • 10 units from Group A Directed Courses;
  • 10 units from Group B Directed Courses;
  • 30 units of Directed Courses which may be selected from Group A or Group B directed courses. In addition, after consultation with the Program Convenor, students may also choose from any non-restricted Postgraduate Business courses offered through the Newcastle Business School (which would count as Group A courses). These courses add a degree of flexibility and cater for the possible special interests and needs of prospective students.

Transition Arrangements

A program revision was implemented for 2012, and some courses were removed from the program and replaced with new courses. Continuing students who have successfully completed GSBS6020 must not enrol in GSBS6004 Continuing students who have not yet successfully completed GSBS6020 must take new core course GSBS6004. For course replacement information, students must make note of details contained under ‘Transitional Arrangements’ in Course Handbooks. Continuing students affected by the program revision or who are experiencing transition problems are advised to consult with the relevant Program Officer.
