Welcome to the Department of Engineering Management
The Department of Engineering Management was established in the year 2002, in the Faculty of Engineering, University of Peradeniya in order to cater for the demands of the field of engineering: the multidisciplinary managerial roles that engineers are expected to perform in the industry.
The need for the boundary-less organizational activities, which result from increasing competitive business environments as well as globalised technical advancements render it impossible for engineers to confine to a single discipline. In order to be in par with the growing demands of the role of the engineer as a manager, she/he has to be equipped with necessary managerial and soft transferable skills supplementary to the technical expertise gained through their relevant specialization.
The Department is also expected to contribute in highlighting the conceptual and human skills an engineering manager may require while performing the technical experts role in an organization. More....
