The Master of Science in Engineering Management (MEM) Program aims at producing graduates that are equipped with deep understanding of the latest technologies and practices in the field of Engineering Management, coupled with essential management knowledge.
The MEM program aims to bridge the divide between engineering, technically-focused Master’s programs and the business-oriented MBA programs. Engineering and Business Management do not exist in isolation but merge in the industry. The proposed program, realizing this relation, is specifically designed to address the engineering aspects and the management issues that pertain technological organizations.
Central to the proposed MEM program is the emphasis on engineering management challenges in Small to Medium Enterprises (SME), the dominant sector of engineering and technological organizations in Cyprus and the greater region.
Specialization in Oil & Gas Management and Energy Management:
Given the continually increasing importance of energy-related issues in Europe and beyond, and in particular the monumental advancements occurring with the discovery of significant reserves of natural gas, and possibly oil as well, in the Exclusive Economic Zone of Cyprus, the program of Engineering Management decided to establish a specialization stream, that of Oil & Gas Management and Energy Management.
The aim of the program is to adequately prepare young engineers and young managers with the management challenges in these fields. These will include elements relating to project and supply chain management, energy demand and energy economics, as well as specialized courses relating to oil and gas engineering and process engineering.
