About offering

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.

This course provides a balance between engineering and business skills and is jointly taught by staff from the School of Civil and Mechanical Engineering and Curtin Graduate School of Business.

The format integrates the functions and skills needed by engineers in management, and successful completion qualifies you for high-level leadership.

Evening classes allow you to tie-in education and on-going work commitments.
