Engineering Management M.S. in Professional Science

The Engineering Management M.S. was created to provide engineers, scientists, and technicians with the business and management tools needed for leadership positions in manufacturing and industry. Designed for working professionals, the program can be completed on a part-time basis over two years; classes are held primarily in the evening.

  • Learn skills including project management, Six Sigma, and lean manufacturing (with certifications!)

  • Accessible to any graduate with a science backgroud

  • Combines interpersonal, management, and engineering skills

  • 36 credit hours total

  • Includes career-building capstone internship and business courses

As a Master of Science in Professional Science (MSPS) degree, the Engineering Management M.S. combines leading-edge, advanced science classes with graduate-level business management courses designed to enhance career success.  Instead of a thesis, students complete a complex, capstone internship.  Over 70% of our MSPS students receive job offers from their internship.
