Master of Science in Engineering Management (MSEM)

Nearly half of the engineers working in industry serve in management capacities, yet many undergraduate engineering curricula do not include information on the development of management problem-solving skills. The Master of Science in Engineering Management program addresses this need by including core courses in project management; supply chain management; and logistics, quality engineering, and statistical methods for quality assurance.

Program Objectives

Graduates of the MSEM program will:

  • be able to plan, design, and manage technological projects;
  • have increased career advancement opportunities given their coursework and experience in the program; and
  • be better prepared to manage and implement change within their organization.
