The online Master of Science in Engineering Management is a multi-disciplinary program for engineers and scientists who want to advance into managerial and executive roles. It will teach you how to manage technical resources and solve problems that require close cooperation between technical and non-technical staff.
Our Engineering Management program has recently been awarded the status of Certified Graduate Program by the American Society of Engineering Management (ASEM), which confirms that the program's curriculum provides a state-of-the-art education of what engineering managers should know. Graduates of the program will also automatically qualify for the Certified Associate in Engineering Management (CAEM), without having to take the certifying exam.
