Master of Engineering Management

The Master of Engineering Management program allows new engineering graduates to explore the possibilities offered by advancing technology through strategic business practices. Seasoned employees who are looking to add a second skillset to their engineering portfolio would also do well in this degree program. It features two specialty tracks—project management or product design and development. Both will provide students with an accelerated pathway to management positions within engineering-based industries.

The Master of Engineering Management requires a minimum of 30 credit hours. Students must take 12 credit hours from the below list of core courses. Students must also take 3 credit hours of a Project-based course with project report. In addition, students must choose one of the following specializations: (a) Project Management, or (b) Product Design & Development. Students are required to take 9 credit hours in their chosen specialization. The remaining 9 credit hours are electives and may be selected from the below list of elective courses.
