Testimonials
What past graduates have to say:
Martina Moyne
The MEM initially appealed to me as it provided me with the opportunity to learn a diverse range of management skills, from project management to people management, whilst having an engineering and operational focus. The diverse group of subjects have given me a higher level, strategic outlook on business and the competency to engage at higher levels of management but also immediately benefited my role as a Product Development Engineer. The course was highly enjoyable and very rewarding and I have no doubt will serve me well in the future. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending the MEM course to anyone interested.

Cathal Cavanagh

I was looking to progress my career, and for a course that would enable me to bridge the gap between engineering and senior management. An engineer’s approach to problem solving is very well regarded in the business world, and this course builds on those strengths while developing the other business skills required.

Just as important, the lecturers on the course come from industry, therefore providing real world application of the financial and professional theory covered. This course without doubt played a direct role in my career development.

What past graduates have to say:
Maria Hayden

I undertook the Masters in Engineering Management at UCD to develop my leadership potential. At the time I was working at management level in an engineering based organisation and after researching numerous courses felt that the MEM provide the best all round education for me.

The MEM provided me with a lot of new skills and broadened my thinking in many areas; adapting to change, thinking strategically, getting the most out of people and looking at the bigger picture. I have used these learning’s directly in my job and have developed my leadership skills substantially as a consequence. After the course was completed I moved into a new role within my organisation. This role is very influential and involves substantial stakeholder and customer engagement. I have no doubt that the MEM has equipped me well to do this job and has contributed to my continuing career development and personal growth.
