Department of Management Sciences



The ongoing globalization has significantly influenced sustainability, health and environmental protection; Capital structures are often seeking for new breed of managers capable of handling management risks and enabling organizations meet their objectives. To serve this need, GIK Institute of Engineering Sciences & Technology offers Masters in Engineering Management (MEM) degree program which is geared towards helping engineers / technologists to develop planning, decision making and managerial skills parallel with advanced technical knowledge leaning. The course outline intends to bridge accredited engineering programs with the managerial skills needed to provide engineering leadership in today’s multi-disciplinary business environments. The program primarily focuses upon dilemma of leadership situations and delivering adequate organization & business skills.

The program makes business sense, and if you are up for building skills that may enable you to manage teams, projects and lead organization the program is structured to serve your professional needs. 

The Best of Business and Engineering

The program will:

  • Combine professional engineering practice with core business and management subject.
  • The MEM degree offers the practical business perspective needed by technical managers as well as comprehensive quantitative and analytical tools.
  • Unlike a traditional MBA program, the MEM Program highlights skills that are specifically required in technology-based organizations.
Course Work

MS degree in Interfaculty Engineering Management Program will be based on 7 – 8 courses from the list given below. Three courses are mandatory from the core requirement, while remaining can be selected based on the field of specialization in research topic for MS thesis.
