About the Program

The Engineering Management Program is designed to provide the background in management science necessary to advance from purely technical positions to supervisory responsibilities in such areas as research and development, production, engineering, design, and technical marketing. Study can be on a part-time or full-time basis, and all courses are offered online.

In our increasingly complex, technologically-oriented economy, demand has risen for professionals with the expertise to manage both human and technological resources — a combination of talents crucial to organizations competing in the global marketplace. Students graduating with the master's in engineering management are significantly better positioned to meet the challenge.

Engineering management is a multidisciplinary program offering a core curriculum and specialization in a selected area of technology or management. Majors in engineering management must hold a bachelor’s degree in engineering, basic science, or a related field. The program is open to those professionals who aspire to be engineering or technically based managers.

Students in the following majors can apply to pursue the MS portion of the BS/MS in Engineering Management:
