The Master of Science in engineering management is a 30-credit non-thesis master’s program with an objective of preparing engineers for careers in the management of engineering and technical organizations and systems.

The program consists of a set of four foundational courses in the analysis of data-driven economic decision-making. It also offers the flexibility to choose one of eight specializations. Specializations allow students to focus on their specific areas of interest.

Each specialization is composed of a set of four specialization courses. These specialization courses emphasize preparing students to gain expertise in a particular industrial context or in addressing a particular class of complex problems. In addition, students will select six credit hours of electives permitting them to broaden their skill sets. This program is available for both full-time on-campus students and for students wishing to complete the program fully online.
