University of Wollongong in Dubai Master of Engineering Management University of Wollongong in Dubai

At UOWD, the MEM program focuses on helping you develop and demonstrate creative, analytical and conceptual skills to analyse, diagnose and execute strategic judgements across all engineering functions. It will empower you to manage teams effectively and to understand managers from other disciplines, as well as providing you with the technical skills to support decision-making processes in complex business and industrial environments. 

The program is quality assured by UOW, which is registered with the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA), the national regulator of the higher education sector in Australia. UOWD graduates have the opportunity to exchange their UOWD degree for the equivalent UOW degree after completion.

Engineering Project Management is a core subject in the MEM program and taking this module satisfies one of the key application criteria for the Project Management Professional (PMP) qualification. Students who pass the program can use this subject as evidence of their 35 hours of project management education.

There are two entry levels to the Master of Engineering Management program. If you have completed a three year undergraduate degree program, or a four year program without a research component, you will enter the MEM at the foundation level. This will involve taking two engineering subjects prior to starting out on the main program. If you have completed a four year degree that included a research component, you will enter directly onto the main program.

If you enter the program at the foundation level you will complete 12 subjects in total. If you go directly to the core program, you will complete 10 subjects. Students typically complete two subjects in a semester, which consists of 13 teaching weeks. Each subject requires one evening of attendance per week and classes are held 6:00pm - 9:30pm, Saturday - Thursday.

Foundation level students will complete two additional subjects which will be decided in consultation with the Faculty.
