About this Program

Your undergraduate degree helped get you where you are today. Preparation for a management-level position is the obvious next step. Eastern Michigan University has designed a program that will help you become as proficient at managing technology as you are at utilizing it.

The engineering management degree offers you the reputation and resources of Eastern Michigan University's School of Engineering Technology – located in the heart of one of the world's major technology and research corridors. EMU's close ties with business and industry leaders led to the development of a program that is as current as it is professional.

The Master of Science in Engineering Management degree was developed based on research about what is most important to know about Engineering Management for today’s work environment, including the bodies of knowledge used for professional certification in engineering management, project management, manufacturing engineering, lean systems and quality management.

The engineering management graduate degree also offers CPT (curriculum practical training) and OPT (optional practical training) to arm you with the real world skills you need to succeed.
