Master of Engineering Management (MEM) graduates apply integrated engineering and business knowledge in a technical environment.
You will gain specialised knowledge in engineering management, and have critical awareness of current and emerging issues relating to engineering management in Aotearoa New Zealand and globally.

You must have either a Bachelor of Engineering with Honours, a Bachelor of Science with Honours, or other qualifications of an equivalent standard, and have a GPA of at least 4 in your 300-level and higher courses. You can also apply for admission to the MEM based on previous studies and work experience, with approval.
You will need to have completed both the academic and non-academic requirements of your previous degree. This may include practical work days, work reports, a workshop training course, and a first aid certificate.
If English is your additional language, you are also required to provide evidence of your English language ability with an IELTS (Academic) score of 7.0, with no individual score below 6.5; or other acceptable evidence.
