South-East Asia Pacific chapter, American Society for Engineering Management
As the South-East Asia Pacific chapter, American Society for Engineering Management (SEAP chapter, ASEM), we are passionate about the critical role of EM in our fast-changing world.
Given advancing globalisation, rapidly growing technology, increasing involvement of stakeholders, and growing ambiguity and complexity, the skills of EM will help you to find critical solutions to the new problems you are facing. There are going to be winners and losers as we face the future: get yourself on the winning side.
Engineering Management is the art and science of planning, organising, allocating resources, and directing and controlling activities that have a technological or systems component. Engineers whose job requires them to complete projects on time and on schedule, work in teams, and assume management or leadership duties, must solve complex problems that require expertise and training in these principles. These principles will enable you to turn current challenges into opportunities.
“Never waste a good challenge!” Associate Professor Leonie Hallo, Co-Director, SEAP chapter, ASEM
Non-Award Certificate in Crisis and Complexity Management
We provide education in EM in the form of a non-award Certificate in Crisis and Complexity Management consisting of 2 courses, Complex Project Management and Engineering Management Principles. Both courses are delivered online and globally.
We also provide Certification through our partnership with the American Society for Engineering Management. ASEM, located in the US, the society which speaks for engineering management across the world. They aim to advance EM practice and theory, maintain high professional standards, promote development of the profession, and serve the public interest. EM can provide solutions to vexing challenges now. It is also the best way for engineers and managers to connect with other practitioners and academics in the field and learn from their experience and best practices.
We provide certification at two levels: Associate Engineering Manager (AEM) for young professionals who are planning to enter management; and Professional Engineering Manager (PEM) for experienced technical managers who want to validate their skills and experience with a professional certification.
