Why Engineering Management?
Our program is designed for busy working professionals, blending engineering and business, allowing you to remain technically astute while acquiring valuable management skills. Engineering managers possess both an ability to apply engineering principles and a skill in organizing and directing technical projects and people in technical jobs. Approximately two-thirds of all engineers spend a substantial portion of their careers as managers, and this degree program develops and enhances their management skills.
Each class meets one night a week on campus which provides valuable opportunities to network and develop relationships with others in a variety of disciplines within the industry without taking too much time away from your work responsibilities and family. The curriculum focuses on the unique requirements of technical management, in three broad areas: Leadership, Business Know-How, and Operational/Technical Management including: finance, economics, and accounting, project management, quality and optimization, leadership, strategic decision making, and entrepreneurship.
All of our engineering professors bring a wealth of industry experience to the classroom, thus you get real world and academic theory combined. You can finish in as little as 18 months with class just one per week to work with your busy schedule.
