Engineering managers combine management expertise with engineering knowledge to lead teams of specialists who may work on highly technical tasks.
An engineering manager’s role may focus more on the processes and procedures of project realisation and on budgets, rather than technical input. They may also be involved at the beginning stages of a project to determine project feasibility.
Engineering managers commonly have postgraduate education and tend to work in offices, though they may conduct site visits.
This course provides a balance between engineering and business skills. It is jointly taught by staff from the Faculty of Science and Engineering and the Faculty of Business and Law.
The format of the course has kept up with industry needs and trends since its inception, and the coursework is relevant to all engineering disciplines. It integrates the functions and skills needed by engineers in management, and successful completion prepares you for high-level leadership in engineering and technology companies across Australia and around the world.
Evening classes allow you to tie in education and ongoing work commitments.
Please refer to the handbook for additional course overview information.

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 provides a base, with an enhancement of management skills achieved by further post-graduate advanced study.
The Master of Engineering Management program provides a balance between engineering and business skills and is jointly taught by staff from the School of Civil and Mechanical Engineering and the Faculty of Business and Law in a format that integrates the functions and skills needed by engineers in management. The engineer in a managerial role in industry has to utilise a broad range of skills and competencies which are essential to the planning, coordination and control of engineering projects, contracts and plant. Curtin University’s Master of Engineering Management provides an ideal pathway for practising engineers into senior-management roles.
