About Engineering Management

The MS in Engineering Management (EGMT) integrates the study of major management disciplines within the context of engineering or technical operations. It provides the skills necessary to manage technical resources, and it focuses on solving problems that require close cooperation between technical and non-technical staff.

The program is designed to provide the background in management science necessary to advance from purely technical positions to those including supervisory responsibilities in such areas as research and development, production, engineering design, and technical marketing.

Courses in the program are scheduled online in an asynchronous format, making it possible for individuals to earn their degrees part-time while still working. The degree may also be completed through full-time study, an option that about 10 percent of our students choose.

Graduates of the program have found their degrees to be highly valued credentials. Many have advanced within their present organizations, while others have accepted responsibilities with new employers or gone on to start their own businesses.
