    blockquote1.pngWelcome to the Master of Engineering Management (MEM) program at the College of Engineering. blockquote2.png

    The mission of the Master of Engineering Management Programs is to provide an opportunity for fresh engineers as well as working professionals to obtain a master's degree in Engineering Management. The program is designed to provide engineers, technology professionals, and managers with a wide range of technical and business skills that would enhance their analytical abilities, decision making, and knowledge, thus making them an asset to their organizations.

    The MEM program is essential as the UAE economy seeks to have effective and efficient industry. The MEM program has been introduced at Abu Dhabi University in response to the UAE market needs where engineering is driving all sectors of the industry and where engineering managerial positions are crucial to the UAE firms.

    Learners will be able to practice the latest engineering and managerial skills that are essential to the success of the industries in both private and public sectors such as for quality management, project management, and supply chain management. In addition, the program will focus in the best practices of system engineering, strategic management, and innovation. The graduates of this program are expected to lead UAE national and international companies towards effectiveness and excellence.

  • About the Program

    The Master of Engineering Management (MEM) program at Abu Dhabi University is offered by the College of Engineering in collaboration with the College of Business Administration and Purdue University-Calumet. The program accepted the first cohort of students in spring 2010. The program consists of 10 courses (30 credit hours), 7 of which are engineering courses and 3 are business courses. The students could also write a thesis in lieu of 2 elective courses. The new program accepts students with a Bachelor’s degree in engineering, architecture, and computer science or IT.

    The MEM program offers its students unique opportunities for advanced education in the field of engineering management as well as opportunities for leadership growth at personal and professional levels. This program is an alternative to an MBA offered to engineers who are looking for improving their engineering education and acquiring business and management skills.

    The program aims at producing graduates who (i) can make responsible engineering and business decisions, (ii) have the knowledge and skills necessary for planning and strategic management of organizations, (iii) have the ability to use principles of engineering and management in the modeling, design, and management of complex systems, and (iv) are capable of using quality standards to assess the quality of engineering systems.

    The MEM program is essential as the UAE economy seeks to have effective and efficient industry. Well developed and fine-tuned engineering management skills are going to be needed to enable the country to attract and retain highly qualified international and local engineers. Failure to develop these engineering management skills at both strategic and operational levels is likely to result in the loss of professionals capable of managing engineering-based industries.

    This program has been introduced at Abu Dhabi University in response to the UAE market needs where engineering is driving all sectors of the industry and where engineering managerial positions are crucial to the UAE firms. The graduates of this program will train Emirati and expatriate professionals to lead and manage projects in the UAE engineering-based industries.
