The relationships between undergraduate engineering education, the needs of industry and management skills

Rosan, Trevor Leslie (1994) The relationships between undergraduate engineering education, the needs of industry and management skills. Coursework Master thesis, Victoria University of Technology.

Abstract

This thesis has two major purposes; first, to investigate whether engineering managers believe their undergraduate studies had a sufficiently strong focus on the development of management skills they need when practising as managers in industry. Secondly, if it is found that this focus needs to be stronger, to determine what additional management skills are required and to recommend a way by which additional management skills can be incorporated into the undergraduate engineering curricula.
