Application/admission is for entry in a specific term and year. Our academic year is divided into 3 terms: Fall (August-December), Spring (January-May), and Summer (multiple sessions May-August). Some programs accept new students only in certain terms and/or years; if your desired entry term isn't mentioned here, you may want to consult the department for clarification.
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.
