Master of Engineering in Engineering Management

General

Program Description

Overview

The engineering management masters combines technical expertise with managerial skills to focus on the management of engineering and technological enterprises. Students learn the technology involved in engineering projects and the business processes through which technology is applied. The objective is to provide a solid foundation in the areas commonly needed by managers who oversee engineers and engineering projects: organizational behavior, finance, and accounting.

The engineering management curriculum is a combination of engineering courses from the College of Engineering's industrial and systems engineering program with management courses from Saunders College of Business. The ME degree is awarded upon successful completion of a minimum of 30 credit hours of study, comprised of nine courses and a capstone project.
