This paper describes the Capstone project undertaken in the Master of Engineering Management program at United Arab Emirates University. It divides the course into two parts: in the first part the students were trained to gain the diagnosis ability through the case study method. In the second part the students engage in a project where they evaluate and propose improved solutions to existing divisions or companies or design an administrative system for engineering divisions or companies. A group of students engaged themselves into forming a design division for a hightech composite manufacturing company. They achieved this by establishing a hypothetical model of a design division and used the model for the specified company. The feedbacks from students suggest that the case study method showed them how to use the knowledge acquired through the taught courses in solving reallife problems.
