The Master of Engineering Management is a professional practice-oriented advanced degree offered by the College of Engineering. This non-thesis program provides a broad-based technical education and is not designed to prepare students for doctoral-level work. Designed for working professionals, this program is 100% online, combining classroom experiences with workplace challenges to acquire administration and management skills.

Successful candidates for admission should have a bachelor's degree in engineering and technology, physical science, computer science or mathematics. Students with non-engineering degrees may be required to take some undergraduate course work in engineering science.
