The Master of Science in Engineering Management (EMGT) is one of a growing number of professional development programs designed to enhance a student’s undergraduate degree. This unique graduate degree has been jointly developed with the Fox School of Business and Management, with required and elective courses offered in both schools. Along with the M.S. in Engineering Management, we also offer a Certificate program which is discussed in more detail below.
The Master of Science in Engineering Management is designed for students with undergraduate science, technology or engineering degrees who wish to pursue careers in technology-based ventures, and want to learn the management techniques necessary to drive and oversee technology development and implementation in organizations.
The program will give participants insights into the market and commercial factors that should be considered when developing new products or technologies, or introducing them into their organizations.
In addition to the Master of Science degree, the College of Engineering offers a Certificate in Engineering Management. This 9-semester hour program provides participants an introduction to the basic concepts of business management from the perspective of a technology professional, as well as an understanding of critical issues around new product development and market success for new technologies. Students in the Certificate program will take one required class (EMGT 5633) and 6 additional semester hours. In most cases, these credits can be applied to the M.S. in Engineering Management degree should a student decide to pursue the full degree.
