Engineering Management Certificate

The Graduate Certificate in Engineering Management is offered as a professional credential to students who successfully complete five graduate-level courses from the MS in Engineering Management curriculum: Economics for Engineering Management, Financial Management I, Engineering Management I, Communications, and one elective. This Certificate program is a valuable professional resource for engineers and scientists who want in-depth exposure to the skills and knowledge needed for management positions.

For a more detailed description of the course requirements, please see the Certificate catalog page.

After completing the Certificate, a student can continue studies towards an M.S. in Engineering Management. All credits earned through the Certificate program (15) count towards the Master's program.


If you are not currently a Drexel student, then to pursue the Graduate Certificate you should apply through Drexel Online.
