Master's in Engineering Management Program Requirements

Admission Requirements

A candidate for admission to the Master of Science program in Engineering Management must:

  1. Possess a baccalaureate degree with a major in a technical field such as engineering, technology, mathematics, computer science, or the physical sciences.
  2. Have completed at least eight hours of mathematics through calculus and a course in statistics and a course in computer programming. Course work or adequate work experience is also required in the areas of work methods analysis, operations planning and control, and quality control.
  3. Possess a grade point average of 3.0 or better in the final two years of undergraduate study.
  4. Submit GRE scores for the General Test.

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.
