MSENM Transition Program
National University students who completed a transition program as part of their undergraduate BSITM degree and who satisfy MSENM transition program requirements described in the catalog description of various undergraduate programs must complete a minimum of 45 quarter units for their MSENM degree. The number of units required for the MSENM program is dependent on the coursework completed in the Bachelors transition program and the grades earned.
(14 courses; 63 quarter units)
To receive a Master of Science in Engineering Management, students must complete 63 quarter units of which 54 quarter units of graduate credit are required. A total of 13.5 quarter units of graduate credit may be granted for equivalent graduate work completed at another accredited institution, as it applies to this degree, and provided the units were not used in earning another advanced degree.
