Program Description:

Engineering management is a technically based management program for the engineering fields. The combination of management concepts and technical focus allows working professionals and new graduates to acquire the management skills necessary to advance in today's technical world. Unlike a traditional MBA program, the ME in engineering management emphasizes skills specifically required in technology-based organizations, whereas an MBA curriculum focuses more on accounting and finance.

With today's expanding, global technology markets, managers must meet higher standards and have the right management skills to compete. Having to manage resources, products, and customers across the globe magnifies the organizational challenges and requires more sophisticated leadership and methods of measuring and analyzing performance. A degree or certificate in engineering management is an excellent way for new managers to develop management skills and become effective leaders of people and technology in their organizations.

EMP graduates work in management and senior roles across all engineering disciplines including quality assurance, staff systems, IT, systems engineering, software engineering, production management, project management and database engineering.

Areas of Study include: Engineering Entrepreneurship, Engineering Management, Leadership and Management, Managing Applied Research in Technology, Performance Excellence in Technology Management, Project Management, Quality Systems for Product and Process Engineering, Six Sigma Statistical Practitioner, Technology Ventures & Product Management

Dual Degree Options: While earning a master’s degree in Engineering Management you may also earn a dual degree in aerospace engineering, computer science, electrical engineering, water engineering & management, and telecommunications.
