Review: More than half time in the 1st Engineering Management Program

Excursion SIEMENS, Vienna

The first CEC/VUT Engineering Management Program is running very well. The participants from 6 different countries passed successfully the examinations and finished very engaged their project works. “We are now a compact group with the main goal to receive the MSc postgraduate degree from VUT” one of the participants pointed out.

The Master theses were presented, discussed and approved by the supervisors. Because of the international faculty most of the supervisors are from abroad e.g. Oakland University (USA), Waterford Institute of Technology (Ireland), University of Technology Munich (Germany).
Highlights of the program were the company visits and evening lectures. Company visits were organised at A1 Mobilkom, IGM Robotic Systems, Siemens and Diamond Aircraft (Wr. Neustadt) the second largest aircraft producer in Europe. “Theory is nice – practise is better; we learned a lot concerning different management philosophies” – statement of a participant.  The last evening lecture was organised in “Bank Gutmann” Vienna in cooperation with the IEEE Technology Management Council Chapter “Central Europe”.

For scientific promotion the program was presented at the IEEE “European Engineering Management Conference” in Estoril (Portugal) and at the IFAC World Congress in Seoul (Korea) and will be presented at the IEEE “International Engineering Management Conference” in Singapore.
