Today’s engineers are routinely confronted with broader job responsibilities that require them to combine managerial aspects with technical aspects.
Since its launch in 2002 as the first program of its kind in the entire region, our Engineering Systems Management (ESM) master’s degree has become one of the most popular graduate degrees at AUS. The demand for our program remains high with an average of 25 students enrolling in it every year.
Our program has become the premier choice for engineers whose goal is to work in areas that integrate technical engineering skills with managerial and economics skills. Our curriculum is designed to enhance management and technical skills of all engineers, regardless of their discipline, to meet the needs of the marketplace in the UAE and other Gulf countries.
Our highly qualified faculty members, modern laboratories and resource facilities and a dynamic curriculum that is in sync with the demands of the global market, has earned our program an enviable reputation throughout the region.
Statistics show that 75 percent of all engineers in the UAE assume management responsibility within the first five years of professional practice. And that is precisely why our program ensures that our students are equipped with the right tools to deal successfully with all the professional challenges that come their way.
