Why Study Engineering Management?
In the complex and competitive world of information and technology, the challenges facing us on a global level (healthcare, cybersecurity, environment, natural and man-made disaters) have created a new need for companies and organizations to integrate technical and business skills for understanding and creating sustainable solutions for these problems. In such an environment, the role of the engineering manager is critical - an individual skilled in the creation, application and management of technology to solve complex problems, invent new processes and products and build new enterprises.
Engineering Management is an interdisciplinary field built upon a science and engineering foundation, with in-depth studies in business, management and systems engineering, among other disciplines. It provides traditional engineers with a formal education in the human, financial, and management skills necessary to develop high quality, cost efficient, technically complex systems and products. At the School of Systems and Enterprises (SSE), Master of Engineering in Engineering Management provides our students with a strong understanding of the technology involved in engineering projects, and the management process through which the technology is applied. The goal is to create engineers who can interface between the technical and business aspects, and contribute the most value to their respective enterprises.
