    Techno-economics analysis (TEA), also referred to as economic feasibility studies, is a core technique which is used to support decision making in all for-profit organisations and sometimes more broadly in the public sector. The fundamental principle of the analysis is that only investments or projects which show a positive return on investment should be approved and implemented. Although stated simply, this principle is complex to apply since it changes according to the manner in which costs and income are accounted or measured. The simplest approaches use the generic models of net present values, discounted cash flows, internal rates of return and the time value of money to compare expenses against earnings. In this module, the student will be given an introduction to the principles of techno-economics and the structure of TEA. This introduction will be followed by material on the core calculations of TEA, including present value, future value and return. The students will be required to apply the initial TEA structure to a class project in order to acquire the basic knowledge with which such an analysis can be completed, and as a consequence, how to guide decisions relating to investment in future projects.

    This module has been designed for master’s students wishing to build substantive and methodological knowledge in two profound and related disciplines and phenomena: organisation studies and innovation studies. It focuses on providing an overview of the main concepts, theoretical perspectives and models regarding organisation, technological innovation and the relationships between different forms of organisation and technological innovation (e.g. organising for creativity; systems supporting innovation). This module further explains innovation at several levels of analysis (individuals, teams, organisations, sectors, nations). Students are expected to apply the acquired knowledge in their workplace.

    Science, Technology & Innovation (STI) Policy is considered to drive innovation and innovation is considered to be a core contributor toeconomic growth in all countries. As a result, STI policy is critical to the effective generation and utilisation of STI knowledge, whether this beundertaken for public good or private gain. In this module the student willbe given an introduction to, and the linkage between, Science and Technology, research and development, and innovation. This introduction will be followed by a brief history of innovation theory and how S&T links to both national and technological innovation systems. The range of policy instruments which can be used to stimulate science, technology andinnovation will then be reviewed, followed by the characterisation of the instruments which are presently adopted in South Africa. The student will then be presented with a range of frameworks to allow the analysis of different S&T policies and innovation systems, with particular reference to South Africa and other countries in the region.

    "The goal of a firm is to maximise the long-term wealth of its shareholders." Why do most management experts generally accept this statement? How do all the other objectives of a firm relate to this goal? Why is the success of most companies measured in financial terms? In FBS 831 answers to these questions are sought. The nature of and interaction between different financial statements are investigated, as well as their role in the creation of shareholder wealth. Although maximising shareholder wealth is the basic general cornerstone of management, recent developments point out that non-quantitative factors are also important in the measurement of company performance.

    The research component is the capstone of the MTM programme. It comprises an independent research study into an area of engineering, project or technology management, applying the principles learned during the programme. Although not a full master’s dissertation, it is essential to produce something original and useful, both to an academic field in the respective programmes and to the public/private sector that searches for solutions. Although this is a dissertation of limited breadth and scope, it nonetheless has to comply with the requirements of scientific research.
