Masters in Engineering Management Requirements

Masters in Engineering Management Requirements

Many of the Masters in Engineering Management programs are offered as professional advancement degrees, designed for professionals who are working in an engineering field and want to obtain additional management training as well as updates on the technology changes associated with the various fields of engineering. Some schools have created online or evening courses for these degrees in order to accommodate working students. There are also dual degree options that incorporate management and engineering courses and in some cases, schools have created multiple graduate programs for engineering management that focus on more than one of the widely disparate areas of engineering in today's tech-oriented economy.

1. The University of Arizona offers a Master of Technical Engineering Management and also a Master of Construction Engineering Management. Both tracks are intended for students with at least two years' work experience. Each degree has a 31 credit requirement for coursework; each degree also has six units of classes in business fundamentals. There are nine units of engineering electives, which will relate to the student's particular area of expertise. There is a class requirement for graduate level engineering mathematics as well. These two degrees diverge with the engineering electives but the management courses are nearly identical, including classes in project management, software, and systems engineering,
