Master in Engineering Management


Program Description

The MS in Engineering Management degree (MEM) can be either an academic or professional master’s degree that bridges the gap between the field of engineering, technology and the field of business by equipping students with the technical expertise and leadership skills required to advance their career in the fast-paced world of technology. Sound decision-making, information management, project management, quality engineering, design engineering, simulation, facility layout, production system and industrial costing management are some of the core issues being dealt as part of their career. MEM graduates can fill this gap.

The need for engineering management has been felt at all levels of managers, particularly in the professional management work environment. Also, management is applicable to every aspect of an organization functions and at all levels of top management, middle management, and lower management. Basic and specialized knowledge in the field of engineering management is a dire need for every engineer and profitable business.

Engineering management entails planning, organizing, allocating resources, and directing and controlling activities that have a technological component. The course has been designed by engineers and business experts with experience at the International level, keeping in view the requirements of the country.
