Master of Science in Civil Engineering

Engineering Management Specialization

Management Specialization

Students in our graduate engineering programs have the option to specialize in Engineering Management.

Engineering management “bridges the gap” between engineering and management, and enables a graduate to work with and through people to get things done. This specialization provides graduates with both technical and managerial skills, combining a typical engineering education (technical) with key elements of a typical management or business education (managerial).
