Engineering Management goes “Scientific”.

Your key to the top engineering league


In the framework of the currently running MSc Engineering Management Program at the Vienna University of Technology the participants have to finish a MSc Thesis according the Bologna Convention. To apply the contents of the lectures “ The Managers and the Researcher” and “ Presentation Techniques” in practice the Continuing Education Center - CEC offered the participants the possibility to present their theses at an international scientific event. Therefore three MSc works were selected for the presentation at the IFAC Workshop on “ Supplemental Ways for Improving International Stability – SWIIS 2010”. The International Federation of Automatic Control – IFAC (www.ifac-control.org) founded in 1956 is an internationally recognized body not only in Control Engineering.

The papers from Justin Willis (Australia) “Communications Management in Partially Distributed Teams”, Mohammed Temraz (Egypt) “Viable Strategies for Innovation in Telecom Industry in Tough Times” and Franz Kaltseis (Austria) “Tools and Methods in Product Development to Reduce the Environmental Impact” were peer reviewed by an international scientific evaluation committee. All papers are evaluated with the best marks (A+) and will be published  in the Conference Proceedings by the publishing company Elsevier citable via an ISSN and a DOI (Digital Object Identifier), a unique industry-standard identifier assigned to every paper.

It was a new experience for the participants to discuss their theses in a forum with international colleagues from science and industry. They got additional inputs and now have a publication in a referred international publication series.
This underlines the “scientific” background of the Engineering Management Program.
