Master of Science in Engineering Management

Ready to transition to a leadership or management position? Our program will enhance your technical expertise while developing your management skills.

You don't have to interrupt your career to earn a master's degree in engineering management. Our convenient classes — offered in a traditional classroom setting and in a simultaneously online environment — enable working professionals to continue to move ahead professionally while completing their degrees in as little as two years. To accommodate working professionals, courses are offered during each of the fall, spring and summer semesters, either over the lunch hour or in the late afternoon or evening. And all simulcast courses are also recorded, enabling on-campus and Internet-based students the ability to playback classroom sessions at their convenience.

Degree Requirements

Applicants must have an undergraduate degree from an accredited program in engineering, engineering technology, physics, chemistry, applied mathematics or related program of study. Applicants with different undergraduate degrees or whose background does not include preparation in mathematics similar to that of an undergraduate engineer (most notably including at least three semesters of calculus) may be required to complete undergraduate prerequisites. Applicants should have at least a 3.0 cumulative grade-point average on a 4.0 scale. In some cases, applicants with a GPA below 3.0 — especially those with significant work experience — may be admitted on a conditional basis.

Additional requirements apply for international students

To apply for admission, click the "Apply Now" link. Along with the application, Engineering Management applicants should submit the following additional information:

  • Official academic records of all previously attended colleges or universities submitted directly from the colleges or universities to the Office of Graduate Admission Processing. (Hand-carried transcripts, official copies marked "Issued to Student" and unofficial copies are not acceptable.)
  • A personal statement that outlines your experience in the engineering field — both academically and professionally — and also describes what you hope to learn in our program and how it will be important both for your career and your current/potential employers.

Please note, while the Department of Engineering Management, Systems and Technology does not require you to provide results from the Graduate Record Exam (GRE) or letters of recommendation, you are welcome to submit such information in support of your application. A current résumé is often helpful as well . . . but also not required.
