Engineering Management Master's Program
The School of Systems and Enterprises' Master of Engineering (M.Eng.) in Engineering Management program equips engineers, technical managers, business operations professionals and others with the skills, tools and methodologies needed to effectively manage complexity across industries.
Designed at the intersection of engineering, management and technology, the M.Eng. in Engineering Management provides students with a strong understanding of the technology involved in engineering projects and the management process — during which the technology is used. Students can expect a program with a strong engineering core with training in quality management, project management, production and technology management, accounting, cost analysis, managerial economics, engineering design, and systems integration. Our program’s emphasis on real-world applications and hands-on learning prepares graduates to keep an organization running efficiently, cost-effectively and, importantly, ahead of its competitors. Upon completion of this degree, students advance to professional positions of increasing responsibility across a broad range of industries such as business, finance, healthcare, software and technology.
Many engineers find themselves at a decision point about five years after graduation, when they must choose either to continue with their technical specialty or to enter the ranks of technical management. Those who choose the latter often find themselves inadequately prepared for their new responsibilities, having little experience or training in management, accounting, business strategy, team development and other vital management skills. Engineering management fills these gaps in engineering and science education with studies in business, management and systems engineering by affording the traditional engineer with formal education in the human, financial and management skills necessary to develop high quality, cost efficient, technically complex systems and products.
The master’s degree requires 10 courses (30 credits): six core required courses and four elective courses.
