Master of Engineering Management - Software Engineering
Engineering has never been simple. Today’s transnational corporations, with teams and supply chains that span the globe, make the process even more complex. Keeping projects on track increasingly requires the skilled input and oversight of engineering managers. In fact, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that an additional 13,100 engineering and manufacturing managers will be needed over the decade from 2012-2022.[i]
