The Master of Science in Engineering Management meets the professional needs of the engineer who, although working in a technical field, finds it necessary to update his or her skills in engineering, as well as acquire knowledge in the management of other engineers. Typically, engineers find that as they advance in their chosen fields, the challenges of management increasingly play a role in the overall responsibilities of the position. Many find their careers would best be served by a program addressing the management challenges of their job responsibilities. This interdisciplinary program is designed for those individuals.
An applicant for the master’s program in engineering management should have a bachelor’s degree from an ABET-accredited engineering program, though applicants with bachelor’s degrees in physical sciences, computer science or mathematics will also be considered. Applicants who have an undergraduate GPA of less than 3.0 on a 4.0 scale may be asked to submit two letters of recommendation, a résumé, a statement of objectives and GRE results. All students are required to have a combined verbal/quantitative GRE score of 300 or higher (using the 130-170 point per part scoring system).
International applicants for whom English is not their primary language must submit internet-based TOEFL scores of 79 or higher in addition to the GPA requirement.
General admission requirements and the process for applying are presented in the Academic Overview section.
The degree requires a minimum of 30 semester credit hours. Students without adequate undergraduate courses in linear and matrix algebra, calculus, probability theory and/or statistics will be required to make up these deficiencies. Courses taken to satisfy these deficiencies or any other admission prerequisites cannot be counted toward the degree requirements. Thesis students must complete a minimum of six semester credit hours of ENM 5999 Thesis Research . More credit hours may be necessary to satisfactorily complete the thesis requirements, but only six may be counted toward the degree requirements. Nonthesis students must pass a final program examination during their final semester before graduation.
