Become an expert in Engineering Management!

Engineering Management can be thought according problem-independent, and solution/technology-independent, principles and methods. Based on systems thinking, related to the successful management of systems, to meet stakeholder requirements and to maximize value delivered to stakeholders in accordance with their values.

In the past, the areas of engineering and management were regarded as two very different and unrelated areas. Trained specialists undertook the process and technical aspects of engineering, while a different type of person altogether, often with an unrelated background and experience, oversaw the management of an engineering business or technical processes. Times have certainly changed; new skills and new approaches are required by a staff having the responsibility to make the most of their hi-tech processes. The need for a new kind of manager has been heightened by the new international nature of most businesses. There is an increasing demand from customers to deal with people familiar with the technical aspects of a product and who are also experts in business management and customer relationships.
