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).
