The Master of Management for Engineers degree is aimed at people who have a previous qualification in engineering or any other sort of technical area, but it basically gives them a management understanding so they can move into leadership and management positions in any kind of industry, and it really nicely complements the technical qualifications from before.
In the Master of Management for Engineers, the students will study a few engineering subjects but the majority of the subjects are in the Business School, so they will study anything from business communications over marketing to human resource management.
They learn about career development, they'll study innovation, entrepreneurship and then they get a chance to choose electives of whatever area they are interested in.
We have a good connection with industries across the country. We send our students to internships with various different companies.
The international students find the internship very important. They get to experience managerial roles, they get to work with managers and companies. They get to network so they meet people that might give them opportunities later on and a lot of our students actually get offered a full-time job before they've even finished their internship.
The internship host organisations generally really like our graduates. They always find them very polite. They find them very well prepared. They obviously have areas to improve because they’re brand-new employees, but they get given feedback and our students are pretty good at dealing with that feedback and improving.
The University found me a perfect host company based on my CV and my skills. I got interviewed by them once and then I got selected for the company.
The internship program offered by this course made me choose this University because the internship in Nepal, it's not like here. After my graduation I would plan to be managing a company, an engineering company.
A lot of our staff are currently still also working in industry, so they also bring in their experience and their examples and their expertise from industry into the classroom.
Sometimes we have guest lecturers. Yes, sometimes we have guest speakers that have been sourced from contacts that we know from our industry networks.
For someone like me who is thinking to study in CQUniversity, I would advise them to study the Master of Management for Engineers because the course and the course content and the opportunities that's given to you from CQUniversity will help you achieve your career ambitions.
It is a great course. It is a Business School qualification so that complements probably the more technical engineering school qualification that students might have had previously.
It gives a really broad understanding and knowledge of business and management. Very transferable skills, excellent opportunities for getting a good job afterwards, so yes, do it.
On completing a Master of Management for Engineers, you will be qualified to manage engineering projects in industry and government. The acquired knowledge and developed skills may also be applied to areas other than engineering.
