Outline

Outline

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.

What jobs can the Engineering Management course lead to?

In Australia, it is expected there will be 2,600 job openings for engineering managers each year, until 2023.
