Overview
The Master of Engineering Management at ALHOSN University is a course oriented program designed to train highly qualified personnel in an environment that combines engineering and management theories and practices to contribute to the growing body of engineering knowledge. The mission of the Master of Engineering Management (MEM) is to prepare technical managers from diverse engineering and science disciplines to efficiently manage complex systems in the UAE and the Gulf region countries. The program provides technical and managerial skills to integrate various resources including people, machines, information and processes to better satisfy customer needs. After completing the requirements for the degree, students will be able to apply engineering and management knowledge to successfully lead and execute engineering projects. Students will be trained to design, model, manage and control complex systems and prepared to play leadership roles in industry and government.

 
Goals and Objectives
The graduates from the MEM program are expected to be able to achieve the following academic objectives:
  • Apply engineering and management knowledge and techniques to solve engineering problems.
  • Analyze, synthesize and evaluate information, solve real-world problems, and effectively perform engineering and management tasks for successful execution of engineering projects.
  • Engage in successful professional careers, communicate effectively, collaborate and work in diverse teams, make successful management of personal and professional career objectives, and continue development through lifelong learning and professional involvement.
  • Engage in service to professional societies and communities through practicing engineering work with professionalism and ethics.

 
Outcomes
The specific educational outcomes that support the objectives of the MEM program are to graduate students who are able to:
  • Use knowledge of mathematics, engineering sciences, and management to identify, model and solve engineering problems.
  • Apply engineering, management and economics knowledge to successfully lead and execute engineering projects and operations.
  • Function within multi-disciplinary teams and realize the importance of professional and ethical responsibilities in work environment.
  • Understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental and societal context.
