Master of Engineering Programs Back to College

  • Overview MPM

    The Master of Project Management (MPM) program at Abu Dhabi University is offered by the College of Engineering (CoE) in collaboration with Purdue University, West Lafayette, USA. The program accepted the first cohort of students in Spring 2013.

    The program is designed to be in line with the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) developed by the Project Management Institute (PMI: www.pmi.org). This prepares the students to take the exam of Project Management Professional (PMP) certification offered by the PMI and makes the program more attractive to professionals and engineers who plan to become certified Project Managers.

    The program curriculum consists of 10 courses (30 credit hours), 6 of which are core courses, 2 are program elective courses, and 2 are business courses. The students could also do a thesis in lieu of the 2 program elective courses.

    Upon completion of the 6 core courses of the program, students will be offered two certificates from Abu Dhabi University, the first one is a Certificate in Project Management Fundamentals, and the second is a Certificate in Advanced Project Management.

    The new program accepts students with a Bachelor's degree in engineering, architecture, computer science, or information technology.

    Program Learning Outcomes

    MPM Graduates will be able to:

    • Demonstrate an understanding of project management issues, roles and activities within organizations.
    • Explain the core concepts, principles and techniques within project management with a focus on managing project resources, controlling project schedule, quality, and cost, managing project risks, and facilitating enterprise integration and innovation.
    • Utilize business skills that are essential for effective project management including project scoping, contracting, procurement management, financial management, and progress communication to stakeholders.
    • Demonstrate leadership, team building skills, and awareness of projects ethical and legal aspects and successfully integrate them into project execution.

  • Overview MEM

    The Master of Engineering Management (MEM) program at Abu Dhabi University is offered by the College of Engineering (CoE) in collaboration with the College of Business Administration (COBA) and Purdue University Calumet. The program accepted the first cohort of students in Spring 2010. The program consists of 10 courses (30 credit hours), of which are engineering courses and 4 are business courses. The students could also do a thesis in lieu of 2 elective courses. The program accepts students with a Bachelor’s degree in engineering, computer science or IT.

    Program Mission

    The MEM 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 finely 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 industry.

    about1
    blockquote1.pngThe mission of the Master of Project Management (MPM) program is to provide an opportunity for fresh engineers as well as working professionals to obtain a master's degree in Project Management on a carefully designed schedule that minimizes disruption of work commitments. The program is designed to provide project managers and business executives a wide range of new skills that would enhance their analytical abilities and knowledge of the Project Management, thus making them an asset to their organizations. blockquote2.png

    The program will enable its graduates to develop an understanding of latest project management issues and to gain managerial and business skills that are essential for effective project management, including project planning, integration, scope management, scheduling, costing, and contract management.

    UAE economy, in general, and Abu Dhabi economy, in particular, are in high need for project managers with advanced degrees to manage the various growing sectors such as the construction industry in both public and private organizations.

    This program has been introduced at Abu Dhabi University in response to the UAE market needs where effective project management is driving many sectors of the industry and where project managers are crucial to the UAE public and private firms. The graduates of this program will train Emirati and expatriate professionals to lead and manage projects in the UAE project-based industries.
