Introduction to MeM at RMIT

Across industries, demand is growing for knowledgeable, creative and responsible leaders – people who have both a deep understanding of the latest engineering and technological innovations, as well as the skills to lead teams and organisations.

This degree prepares you to become an engineering manager or director in an engineering or technology-based company, by exploring real-world issues, problems and opportunities – such as risk and feasibility studies, environmental management systems, and international issues – and contextualising it all with contemporary management techniques.

Your management skills and expertise will be developed through an exploration of key topics and management techniques, including:

  • managing innovation and change management
  • agile management and adaptive leadership
  • development of customer-orientated organisations
  • effective problem solving
  • technology management
  • challenging established practices and norms
  • strategy development for national and global markets
