Engineers as Leaders
At the core of the Engineering Management MS program is a single driving principle—engineers as leaders. Specialized training in engineering management specifically prepares graduates for key business roles in advancing technological sectors, whereas more generalized programs do not. Graduates of the Engineering Management MS program can transition to project management and project leadership roles, guiding teams across an array of industries, including transportation, pharmaceutics, utilities and more.
