Founded in 1987 through a Lockheed Martin endowment, the Engineering Management Program (EMP) serves students who are seeking career advancement and new management opportunities in the engineering and technology arenas. The program is designed for working professionals who want to develop in-depth managerial and entrepreneurial skills specific to engineering and the applied sciences.
ME (Masters of Engineering in Engineering Management)
The degree is focused on preparing the next generation of engineering leaders by offering a top-quality, masters-level engineering management program available on-campus or through distance learning. The portability and flexibility of the distance option enables the student to balance an advanced degree with a fast-paced career and life. The curriculum focuses on the unique requirements of technical management, including: finance and accounting, project management, quality and productivity, process management, leadership, and entrepreneurship. Engineering Anywhere provides convenient and flexible graduate education from the College of Engineering via online delivery (streaming and downloading from the Internet) and CD-ROM. Engineering Anywhere is a global learning opportunity provided by the University of Colorado Boulder’s College of Engineering and Applied Science and The Center for Advanced Engineering and Technology Education.
