MS in Engineering Management
Today's technology-driven economy needs leaders who understand both engineering and management. Increasingly, given their analytical skills, many engineers are promoted to management. In fact, the most common educational background for Chief Executive Officers is engineering. So having a 30-credit degree in engineering management makes you doubly marketable: you’ll know the latest management techniques as well as the latest in engineering. The degree is particularly valuable to individuals who have experience in industry, government and service organizations, or those who have been or are entrepreneurs. It provides broad-based knowledge and skills to succeed as organizational managers and project managers, from conceptualization through implementation, with emphasis on project controls, cost estimating, engineering legal and ethical issues and intellectual property concerns.
