Manufacturing engineering is now moving into the digital era, otherwise known as Industry 4.0. The next paradigm shift that is fast approaching and this is the era of personalisation and customisation, known as Industry 5.0. To facilitate this personalisation of products, human and technology must work together seamlessly in a manner where the best of both is leveraged. Human centred systems are at the heart of this revolution. One of the most important enablers of this change is the education of our technologists, our university degrees and post graduate programmes must embed this expertise into their core modules. This contribution looks the educational aspects of the MSc in Engineering Management in the Technical University of Vienna Austria (TUWien) as an example of education which has evolved to facilitate emerging trends. An introduction and a short history of this executive postgraduate MSc is presented, as it is a long established and well know programme which dates back to 1995.
