Engineering Management Curriculum

The 30-unit master of Engineering Management is available for full-time or part-time students. The degree is designed for individuals with an engineering or allied sciences undergraduate degree. Students will learn to understand and operate in the space between business and technology.

The curriculum demystifies the full business cycle – strategy, marketing, finance, accounting, new product development, service, sales, manufacturing. Students study today's emerging and disruptive technologies – what they are and how they threaten to disrupt. The program is rounded out with Agile project management and a study of leadership, as well as broad opportunities for the student to build on his or her undergraduate studies, or to build a new area of technology-business expertise. It is the "Engineer's MBA."

The 15-unit graduate certificate in Engineering Management is also offered and can be transferred into the degree program at any time.
