MPM, MEM and MTIM degrees offered, admission and fees

Qualifications Awarded

Two types of qualifications are awarded MEng (Project Management or Engineering Management or Technology and Innovation Management) and MSc (Project Management or Engineering Management or Technology and Innovation Management), depending on the undergraduate qualification of the student. Course structure, content and duration are nominally the same in both cases.

Admission criteria (Taught masters degrees)

Admission is competitive and a selection committee carefully screens applicants. Selection procedures may include a personal interview.

Candidates for the MEng degree must be in possession of a four-year Bachelors degree in Engineering from a recognised institution and have at least 3 years’ relevant postgraduate experience. Candidates for the MSc degree must be in possession of a BSc degree as well as a BSc Honours degree (four study years) in a suitable scientific field and also have at least 3 years’ relevant postgraduate experience.

Only applicants with a minimum average of 60 % (calculated on the grades of all the final year modules (failed/passed) for the pre-requisite degree) will be considered for registration for the MSc degree. 

A TOEFL or IELTS test will be required of candidates who have not studied the pre-requisite degree through the medium of English.

Compliance with the criteria does not guarantee admission.
