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 future project managers
  • Systems Management to manage the lifecycle of systems including definition, development, deployment and decommissioning
  • Technology Management to manage and lead technology in global marketplace

These specializations offer practical business perspectives necessary for engineering management.
