Engineering Management leadership has become a highly sought skill in today’s competitive global technological marketplace. The Master of Science in Engineering Management degree program is designed to bring the benefits of modern technology and high-quality graduate-level instruction to engineers/scientists/technologists interested in furthering their skills in engineering management with specialization in the following areas:
- Project Management – to become effective and efficient project/program managers.
- Systems Engineering – to manage activities related to the life cycle of systems.
These specializations offer practical business perspectives necessary for engineering management. Unlike traditional MBA programs, the MSEM programs emphasize management skills that are specifically built on the students’ technical backgrounds and experience. The custom-designed mix of management concepts and technical expertise will help prepare professionals to direct major public and private organizations in the increasingly complicated managerial environment of today’s competitive global, technical environment. In this program, engineering management principles are broadly based and draw from many different disciplines such as applied sciences, engineering, natural sciences, mathematics, economics, business, and social sciences.

Successful completion and attainment of National University degrees do not lead to automatic or immediate licensure, employment, or certification in any state/country. The University cannot guarantee that any professional organization or business will accept a graduate’s application to sit for any certification, licensure, or related exam for the purpose of professional certification.
Program availability varies by state. Many disciplines, professions, and jobs require disclosure of an individual’s criminal history, and a variety of states require background checks to apply to, or be eligible for, certain certificates, registrations, and licenses. Existence of a criminal history may also subject an individual to denial of an initial application for a certificate, registration, or license and/or result in the revocation or suspension of an existing certificate, registration, or license. Requirements can vary by state, occupation, and/or licensing authority.
NU graduates will be subject to additional requirements on a program, certification/licensure, employment, and state-by-state basis that can include one or more of the following items: internships, practicum experience, additional coursework, exams, tests, drug testing, earning an additional degree, and/or other training/education requirements.
All prospective students are advised to review employment, certification, and/or licensure requirements in their state, and to contact the certification/licensing body of the state and/or country where they intend to obtain certification/licensure to verify that these courses/programs qualify in that state/country, prior to enrolling. Prospective students are also advised to regularly review the state’s/country’s policies and procedures relating to certification/licensure, as those policies are subject to change.
National University degrees do not guarantee employment or salary of any kind. Prospective students are strongly encouraged to review desired job positions to review degrees, education, and/or training required to apply for desired positions. Prospective students should monitor these positions as requirements, salary, and other relevant factors can change over time.
