Bachelor of Science in Technology and Engineering Management
(B.Sc., Technology and Engineering Management)
The B.Sc. Technology and Engineering Management (TEM) programme at Asian University has been designed to help create technologists with multidisciplinary skills. The fact that we now live in an increasingly complex world, where both products, services and technologies need professionals with a variety of hard and soft skills, makes this course all the more relevant.
In the TEM programme, students study essential core engineering and management subjects. In addition, the following areas of specialization are offered:
- Facilities Management (FM)
- Project Management (PM)
- Technology Management (TM)
- Telecommunications and Network Management (TNM)
A very important component of the TEM programme is the substantial amount of time that students spend in industry before graduating. This degree programme has been designed to produce professionals that are technically competent as well as immediately employable.

Facilities Management involves the coordination of infrastructure, people and organization for the administration of a wide range of facilities ranging from offices, shopping complexes and educational institutes to airports, hospitals and hotels. The Facilities Management specialization at Asian University allows students to first study some key areas of core competency in this important and competitive interdisciplinary field, including: energy supply, heating, ventilation, air-conditioning, maintenance, plumbing, drainage, communication systems, and electrical systems. Students then have the option to select additional specialized electives covering areas as diverse as fire-protection, acoustic engineering, air-quality assessment, sustainable buildings, etc.
Job opportunities: facilities manager; operational facility analyst; energy/ design engineer.
Project Managementinvolves the planning, organizing and controlling of resources, procedures and protocols in order to successfully, and efficiently, produce a product or a service. Project management is crucial to the success of all engineering endeavors, requiring a blend of engineering, or technical, expertise together with management skills. The Project Management specialization at Asian University aims to equip students to have competencies involving these two distinctive skill sets. After a firm grounding in general engineering, students then move on to study key aspects of administration, team dynamics, the practice and principles of project management, as well as planning, scheduling, quality control and project implantation. Students are then given the choice of electives involving areas such as public relations, advertising, security, risk and liability, computer-information systems etc., as well as specialized project-management topics related to the hospitality industry.
Job opportunities: project manager, planning operations coordinator; IT project manager and international customer support manager.
Technology Managementprepares students to analyze technologies, and their commercial impact, and implement these in the organizational context of the firm. Specifically, students will understand, both internal to their own organization and external in relation with business partners, what the current and future technological, economic and social environments require technological firms to do. In addition, students will be able to analyze and anticipate wider societal trends in which new technological production takes shape and in which market the resulting products and services are to be sold. After having sufficient background in technology and management, students then have the option to select additional specialized electives covering areas such as knowledge management, IT and operation management, quality management, management of technology and innovation, product design and development, and entrepreneurship and small business studies.
Job opportunities: computer system analyst; management information systems director; computer support specialist and computer software engineer.
Telecommunications and Network Managementoffers students a comprehensive and applied overview of telecommunications and networking technologies. The Telecommunications and Network Management specialization at Asian University aims to equip students to obtain a hands-on and forward-looking knowledge of wired, wireless, and unified communications approaches. Students will learn how to apply this knowledge to develop effective solutions that can achieve the strategic goals of the enterprise. Furthermore, students will be provided a practical perspective on how to analyze, design, evaluate, and manage the total context of telecommunications and networking technology. After having sufficient background in communications and networks, students then have the option to select additional specialized electives covering areas such as information and network security, wireless networks and communications, communication network analysis and design, and telecommunications network operations and management.
Job opportunities: telecommunications systems manager; customer service representative; line installers; computer software engineers.
