Master of Engineering Management (MEMgt)

Course Description

Invest in your future

Companies today are facing major global challenges in areas such as health, sustainability, and environmental protection, provoking the need for solutions that combine technical skills and business acumen.

The Master of Engineering Management fills this gap in the market by equipping graduates with critical thinking and innovative management principles, in-depth knowledge of project management, and the ability to apply these capabilities to practical, real life contexts. This programme is offered jointly by the University of Auckland’s Faculty of Engineering and Business School, ensuring that you’ll be exposed to experts from both fields.

Sometimes viewed as an MBA for engineers, the MEMgmt focuses on building specific abilities required for technology-driven organisations. This high quality management qualification is designed to accelerate your development as an engineering professional so you can take on leadership roles in modern business environments.

Programme structure

Taught (120 points)
Full-time or part-time

The Master of Engineering Management is a flexible programme, making it convenient for our students, who are typically already employed professionals – you will have the opportunity to design your own personal curriculum from a large selection of electives to suit your schedule, learning objectives, and career goals.

This programme also contains a major research component, making it uniquely suitable as a pathway to a PhD. The MEMgt research project enables you to integrate your learning to, and develop knowledge in a real industrial setting. Here, you will be able to directly demonstrate your newly-acquired management competence to a current or future employer.


Our electives allow you to choose a focus beyond the programme’s compulsory research component – based on your interests and desired career outcomes, you can either opt for an engineering or management focus. You can choose from broad categories that include project management and innovation management, and consider how they can apply to a technological environment. There are also distance learning options available, making the programme especially flexible for those currently in the workforce.

(Student Profile)

Simon Mittermeier

5289.jpg “Many of the University of Auckland’s postgraduate courses are tailored to cater for working professionals, which is great: my undergraduate Engineering degree was a good foundation for the technical aspects of an engineering career, but I soon realised I wanted to learn a lot more about how engineering fits into the wider business environment.

“The Master of Engineering Management is a great programme for this. It offers many electives beyond traditional engineering: marketing, operations management, accounting and project management. I especially enjoyed classroom and group discussions with other students. Many were working professionals – I learnt a lot about how the course content applied to their industries. It was great to observe how other businesses approach the same problems.

“I love working in the medical device industry, where I design Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) solutions. Developing products that make a genuine difference in people’s lives brings me great satisfaction. Some of our best days at work are when we get positive feedback from patients and get to see how our designs have helped them.

A big reason I did engineering was the tangible nature of it – we can design and create things that make a real difference. At Fisher & Paykel Healthcare, we share a simple vision that everyone should be able to have a good night’s sleep. Being able to bring this reality to people is quite special.”

Simon Mittermeier completed a Master of Engineering Management and now works as a product development manager (OSA Interface) at Fisher & Paykel Healthcare.
