Designed for the technical manager who needs a broad education to keep an organization operating efficiently and working ahead of its competitors, GW’s engineering management program provides graduate education in the most current management techniques for technological and scientific organizations.
The Department of Engineering Management and Systems Engineering offers the Ph.D. and M.S. degrees, as well as two professional degrees in engineering management. Graduate students can pursue their degrees in one of the following focus areas: crisis, emergency, and risk management; economics, finance, and cost engineering; engineering and technology management; environmental and energy management; and knowledge and information management.
The doctoral program, tailored for each student, is designed to provide the ability to perform substantive research in an area of the student’s choice. Students benefit from working closely with faculty whose applications research has been successfully used by major organizations.
Students pursuing a master’s degree learn excellent skills at the cutting edge of engineering management. They also benefit from GW’s many contacts with industry and governmental leaders. Students may choose from a thesis or non-thesis option for the master's degree.
The professional degree program is designed for students who seek in-depth study in their field beyond a master's degree but want to concentrate on applied subject material rather than on basic science. This post-master's program provides advanced study in preparation for pragmatic application and leads to the degree of engineer or of applied scientist.
The Office of Student Financial Assistance offers financial aid in the form of Federal Stafford Loans and alternative loans to graduate students seeking to finance their graduate educations.
