From planning to completion, engineering managers are involved in nearly every aspect of engineering projects. They need strong business administration and leadership abilities in order to supervise employees, manage finances, and ensure the ultimate success of the jobs they oversee. Not only must they demonstrate technical expertise in their particular field, they also require excellent communication skills to coordinate with other managers, contractors, suppliers, and customers in an effective and professional manner.
The demand for leaders in today's engineering fields is expected to increase, especially in growing areas such as environmental and biomedical engineering. Lawrence Technological University's Master of Engineering Management is designed for professionals with diverse backgrounds - program management, engineering, quality, manufacturing, production control, management information systems, and other technical fields - who wish to expand their knowledge and advance their careers.
Admission to the Master of Engineering Management program as a regular graduate student requires the demonstration of high potential for success based on the following:
- Submission of the Application for Graduate Admission;
- A bachelor of science in engineering, engineering technology, science, mathematics, or computer science from an accredited college or university (minimum GPA of 3.0);
- Official transcripts of all completed college work;
- Three letters of recommendation;
- A resume, including professional experiences and extracurricular activities.
Applicants who do not meet all conditions for regular admissions may be admitted on a provisional basis as determined by the Graduate Admissions Committee of the College of Engineering. The applicant will be evaluated for official graduate student status upon completion of six semester hours of graduate course work, achieving a minimum grade of 3.0 in each course, at the University.
Students with provisional admission status may be required to take additional pre-courses to meet the program admission requirements.
