Message from the Chairman

​Welcome to the website of the Engineering Management department.

The  Engineering Management department offers courses on the graduate level only, that lead the student to a “Masters of Science in Engineering Management” (MSEM).

The Engineering Management is a scientific discipline, which combines engineering knowledge of modeling and solving (engineering) problems with  project management skills, mainly planning, organizing, leading and controlling, in addition to operations management knowledge.
It is observed that both the Lebanese, and regional market have shown a growth in engineering and management. Hence, an increasing demand for professionals with joint engineering and management skills is envisaged. 
An Engineering Management professional career brings together the technological problem-solving savvy of engineering and the organizational, administrative, and planning abilities of management in order to oversee complex enterprises from conception to completion.
Thus, it is noticed that professional ‘practicing engineers’ wishing to gain in-depth management skills are seeking academic training in universities. On the other hand, undergraduate engineering students, interested in an engineering management career are in need of pursuing a graduate level of academic training.

The Masters’ program of Engineering Management at the University Of Balamand is designed to bridge the knowledge gap between engineering and management. It equips practicing engineers and fresh graduate engineers with skills in engineering problems modeling and a strong mathematical knowledge in solving these problems on one hand, and with skills in project and operations management on the other.
In order to attract i) practicing engineers dealing with management issues, and ii) graduate students from architecture, civil, electrical, mechanical and chemical engineering departments and schools; the Engineering Management program focuses on preparing both parties to acquire the Project Management Professional (PMP) certificate, by focusing on the project management body of knowledge. The program also equips students with strong mathematical background, training them to model and solve multi-tasks and mulit-natured engineering problems.
