Master's Degree in Engineering Management

By combining courses in systems, engineering, and management, we provide the right mix of technical and management content to prepare engineers and scientists to assume positions of increasing responsibility.  The information age has produced problems that are complex, interdisciplinary, and economically driven.  Our program is designed by industry to meet these challenges.  Through the use of multiple delivery methods to include traditional graduate classes, web based, and executive modules, we have developed a program that is one of the leading edge of engineering education that meets the needs of the working professional.

Graduates from this program will be prepared to work effectively at the interface between engineering and management and to assume professional positions of increasing responsibility. The six core courses for this program and four elective courses.
