The M.A. in Engineering Management at IU is designed to train you in strategic decision-making and engineering processes, giving you the know-how you need to take on high-level management responsibilities in an international environment:
Projects in technical areas include the development of new components, the introduction of new production lines or even the construction of new test tracks for commercial vehicles or such. As Project Manager, you ensure all goals are met with expert technical knowledge and quality planning, coordination, and leadership. You plan achievements, quality, schedules, costs and milestones and ensure these are met as precisely as possible. You use your industry and technical knowledge to find the right tools and systems to orchestrate precise organization and execution of projects.
As a Quality Manager in the technical field, you are responsible for improving the process, product, material and service quality. Customer requirements need to be met in terms of product quality; quality costs must be minimised, and production times shortened in order to achieve effective manufacturing processes. You analyse production and business processes, define weaknesses, develop appropriate measures and implement them. You work closely with the departments such as development, design, production, materials management, procurement and possibly also with technical marketing, sales and product management.
Engineering Project Manager
Engineering Project Managers are responsible for complete support for demanding large-scale projects. Their knowledge is even required in the evaluation of customer inquiries in order to develop concepts including alternative solutions. Engineering Project Managers bring all the threads together and involve operators, suppliers, specialist departments and authorities in realising projects. Their business knowledge provides a foundation for estimating risks and including costs in calculations. You also check technical documents and advise on technical problems.
