The master of science degree 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, as well as 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 credits of electives permitting them to broaden their skill sets. 

This program is available for both full-time on-campus student and for students wishing to complete the program fully online via distance. 

Curriculum consists of:

  • Required foundation courses (12 Credits)
  • Area of Specialization (12 Credits)
  • Electives (6 credits)

Please note: Courses shown in bold will regularly be offered via Distance Learning
