The MS in Engineering Management program (MSEMT) is designed for students with undergraduate degrees in engineering or related sciences to prepare them for management responsibilities. As an MSEMT student, you will learn how to lead technology projects as well as manage teams, engineering functions, and companies.
In addition, you will gain an understanding of the economic decision making processes. More than just theory, the MSEMT program offers real-world examples provided by instructors who have years of relevant industry experience, covering topics such as technology creation, management of invention, information systems, managerial accounting, and quantitative methods.
This is also a suitable program to help prospective technical entrepreneurs understand the enterprise creation process.
