Master of Science in Engineering and Operations Management
The Master of Science in Engineering and Operations Management (MSEOM) provides engineering and technical professionals with the knowledge and skills required to assume leadership positions in manufacturing and service organizations in a global market environment. Created for individuals who aspire to be involved in managing technology and organizations, the program melds state-of-the-art engineering methodologies with key components of business-related fields such as finance, marketing, and the theory of management.
This program has been designed to educate engineers and technical professionals who aspire to hold engineering, project management, and operations management positions in both the manufacturing and service sectors. Such professionals require advanced education in the use of scarce resources, managing workforce teams, establishing effective supply chains, assuring high quality products and services, establishing customer relationships, and planning successful organizational operations. In addition, certain topics are required that are usually part of an MBA program. For this program, these are basic finance, marketing, and organizational development topics that are needed to make good operational decisions. Typical positions include plant manager, production planner, supply chain and logistics manager, quality assurance officer, project engineer, program coordinator, lean operations specialist, and contract engineering manager.
This program is fully accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC). Accreditation of an institution of higher education by the New England Association indicates that it meets or exceeds criteria for the assessment of institutional quality periodically applied through a peer review process. An accredited college or university is one which has available the necessary resources to achieve its stated purposes through appropriate educational programs, is substantially doing so, and gives reasonable evidence that it will continue to do so in the foreseeable future. Institutional integrity is also addressed through accreditation.
International Student Requirements:
Graduate/Post-Graduate international applicants seeking a master's degree must submit official certified or attested copies of all university/college records with a proof of bachelor's degree completion. For non-English transcripts, a word-for-word certified or attested English translation in the same format as the official document is required. An official evaluation of foreign academic credentials for all university-level academic work done outside the United States is highly recommended.

Completion of ELS Language Center Level 112 is also accepted in lieu of either the TOEFL or IELTS for most graduate majors except for the M.S. program in Human Nutrition-Nutritional Genomics, the M.S. program in Cellular and Molecular Biology and the Ph.D. program in Criminal Justice.
