Engineering Management Master's

An engineering management master program provides an upper-level degree designed to prepare graduate students for upper-level employment. The program is for engineers seeking professions in higher management as technical leaders in their discipline. A master’s in engineering management (sometimes called M.E.M for short) applies business principles to the field of engineering and teaches students leadership skills with an emphasis in technology. Graduates go on to use these learned skills to organize, direct, and manage people and projects in the workplace. This master degree is highly applicable to technical fields, but is finding its way into more industries than ever before due to the growing necessity for technology in all kinds of businesses.

For those currently in engineering disciplines, an M.E.M might allow advancement to a technical program manager at their current employer, or even competitive companies or firms. An M.E.M might also be used by a software program coordinator looking to become a project manager in software development. Alternatively, the program curriculum for an engineering management master’s can also be a launch pad, so-to-speak, for entrepreneurs desiring rooted education in technical leadership to start their business or introduce a new product. As you can see, the M.E.M is a tool that may transform a career path from many different starting points.
