Engineering Management is the Process of Planning, Organizing, Staffing, leading and influencing People and Controlling Activities which have a Technological Component. These functions require foundation skills from engineering managers to manage themselves, staff, teams, projects, technologies and global issues of importance. These requirements being partly technical and partly business related, the Colleges of Engineering, and Business and Economics got together and launched the program in 2006. The program focuses on product development, process management, Quality Engineering and Project management from the technical side and leadership, management of technical innovations, supply chain, finance and decision making from the business side. The knowledge and skills thus gained are integrated through an action project.
- Management decision-making skills.
- Professional leadership and management skills.
- Knowledge of cost, financial and economic analysis.
- Knowledge about management of existing and emerging technologies.
- Continued intellectual growth in the engineering field.
