Development of a Design Division for an Industry: A Capstone Project in a Master of Engineering Management Program Master of Engineering Management programs cover a wide variety of courses and as a result. Capstone projects in a Master of Engineering Management program are unique. They however are aimed to provide the learning experience on using their knowledge to solve a real life problem. Case study method has been developed to train the students in applying the subject matter learned in various courses. Diagnosis is the production of knowledge by systematically analyzing the available data. The analysis helps to produce a coherent strategy and to determine the means to implement this strategy. By conducting a wide range of case analysis the student learns how to conduct these analyses and to generate various strategies. During the first half of the semester capstone students in the Master of Engineering Management program at X university are trained in analysis of cases from a variety of branches of the EMBOK. In the second half they are requested to design the system of such an organization. The paper describes the work by a group of students who studied the engineering design process in the product development and marketing course. They apply that knowledge and the experience gained from case analyses to develop a strategy to open up a Design Department for a large local industry. The method adopted by them and the lessons learned will be described in the paper.
