Room E-222 Parkview Campus

The Master of Science in Engineering Management was developed to meet the need for professional leaders in manufacturing and service operations. Its objectives are:

  1. To enhance the capabilities to deal with resources available in commerce and industry to managing people, money, and projects.
  2. To develop the leadership capabilities based on the student’s strong technical background and significant managerial skills.
  3. To allow students to develop analytical and managerial skills and to acquire knowledge in related fields.
  4. To develop their ability to integrate technical, managerial and systems skills to improve the performance of the enterprise.
  5. To prepare students for further study in post-master’s and doctoral programs as their interest and professional growth require.

The scope of the graduate program includes studies in the areas of engineering, technical resource management, and industrial leadership.  The program requires completion of a minimum of 30 semester hours beyond the entry level prerequisites in the student’s program.

Admission Requirements

  1. Possess a baccalaureate degree with a major in a technical field, such as engineering, technology, mathematics, computer science, or the physical sciences.  For other majors, see item 2.
  2. Show evidence of completion of at least eight semester hours of mathematics and eight semester hours of physics and/or chemistry with a minimum overall grade point average of 2.5 in these areas.
  3. Submit GRE (Graduate Record Examination) scores for the General Test.
