This program is certified by the American Society for Engineering Management. All graduates qualify for the Certified Associate in Engineering Management (CAEM) credential without an exam.
A candidate for admission to the Master of Science program in Engineering Management must:
- Possess a baccalaureate degree with a major in a technical field such as engineering, technology, mathematics, computer science, or the physical sciences. Students must have a course in statistics and coursework or experience in computer programming.
- Possess a grade point average of 3.0 or better in the final two years of undergraduate study.
Applicants with a grade point average of at least 2.5 in the final two years of undergraduate study will be given probationary admission (non-degree status). They may be granted regular admission after completing nine hours of approved graduate courses toward a M.S. degree in engineering management with a grade of "B" or better in each course.
To earn a Master of Science degree in engineering management, the following requirements must be met.
- A written report and oral presentation for EM 6970, a project course that will be developed around a significant topic of graduate study interest (this is usually substituted by an approved EM 6000 level course).
- An approved, integrated program with a minimum of 30 semester credit hours and an overall grade of "B" or better, with no grade below "C.
- The 30 credit hours must be completed as follows:
- 18 credits of core requirements
- Three credits of EM 6970, Problems in Engineering Management
- Nine credits of electives.
The core consists of the following seven courses, which have been selected to prepare students in advanced concepts in different areas of engineering management:
IEE 5010 - Survey of Industrial Engineering Topics
EM 5050 - Continuous Improvement in Operations
EM 5080 - Advanced Quality Management
EM 6000 - Concepts and Principles of Engineering Management
IEE 6060 - Capital Budgeting and Cost Analysis
EM 6120 - Production and Operations Management
EM 6140 - Project Management
- The nine credits of elective courses may be taken at any level (5000 or 6000) from courses offered within the Department of Industrial and Entrepreneurial Engineering & Engineering Management or elsewhere in the University.
- The elected courses must be compatible with the overall program and the career objectives of the student.
- These courses must be approved by the program advisor prior to registration.
- Not all 5000 and 6000 level courses are approved.
