The M.S. in Engineering Management (EGMT) integrates the study of major management disciplines within the context of engineering or technical operations. It provides the skills necessary to manage technical resources, and it focuses on solving problems that require close cooperation between technical and non-technical staff.
Engineering Management students are engineers and scientists with professional experience in technology-intensive organizations and industries. The program provides these students with the background in management science necessary to advance from purely technical positions to supervisory responsibilities in such areas as research and development, production, engineering design, and technical marketing.
Courses in the program are scheduled online in an asynchronous format, and specifically designed for working professionals. In this way, it is possible for individuals to earn their degrees part-time while still managing their professional and personal lives. The degree may also be completed through full-time study, an option that about 10 percent of our students choose.
Graduates of the program have found their degrees to be highly valued credentials. Many have advanced within their present organizations, while others have accepted responsibilities with new employers or gone on to start their own businesses.
Motivated students can simultaneously pursue two M.S. degrees at Drexel, significantly reducing the total number of credits required. Potential pairings with the M.S. Engineering Management include:
M.S. Chemical Engineering
M.S. Civil Engineering
M.S. Construction Management
M.S. Electrical Engineering
M.S. Project Management
M.S. Property Management
M.S. Material Science
