Engineers have a sound educational base in the theory and application of technology, and they are well placed to play important roles as managers in manufacturing, construction and other engineering industries. Many engineers take on managerial roles during their careers, some within a short time of graduation. It is therefore essential that graduate engineers have an understanding of the basic principles of management and their application in engineering organisations. Graduates also need an appreciation of the social environment within which they will practice, particularly those aspects of the law and ethics pertaining to the engineering profession.
