Engineering Management, Master

  • Application Deadline
  • 16 months
  • English
Managing a $200 million project is vastly different to working on a $200 million project. It takes vision, exceptional communication skills, broad industry knowledge, business acumen and the ability to delegate effectively – even when your first instinct is to complete the task yourself. The Engineering Management programme is offered at Southern Cross University Online.


Our online Master of Engineering Management is the MBA for engineers. Taught by industry and academic leaders, it’s designed to prepare you to lead and innovate in the top tiers, work across any engineering discipline, or start your own firm or consultancy. Engineering graduate programs bolster your engineering foundation. When working toward a Masters in engineering, units covered include economic viability and sustainability, infrastructure longevity and stakeholder participation. You can also add a business administration flavour to your degree by choosing units in entrepreneurship and marketing, accounting, project management and leadership, to give yourself a well-rounded edge.

A Master of Engineering Management from Southern Cross University Online will prime you for a future less “greenfield”. You’ll gain the skills to respond strategically to a growing population demand for world-class infrastructure, becoming a versatile engineer who can manage multi-disciplinary teams, stakeholders, budgets and timelines. In addition, some units studied in a master of engineering degree may count towards your continued professional development (CPD) requirements with Engineers Australia or your relevant professional registering body.

Advanced standing

If you’ve transferred from an MBA, or have studied part or all of a Graduate Certificate in Business, Graduate Diploma in Business or an MBA, you may be eligible for advanced standing toward your Masters of engineering online. This recognition of prior knowledge can shave months off your total study time, which means you can graduate with a master of engineering even sooner.
