The graduate Engineering Management Program consists of a professional master’s degree and certificates that are designed for working professionals taking classes part-time, however, students may also attend full-time.  Although work experience is not required, we do find it is beneficial for our program.  Due to the nature of the Engineering Management Program, students do not qualify for research or teaching assistantships, however, hourly positions are allowed.  We do not provide support in finding internships or job placement, but Career Services can provide assistance in these areas.  


Applications received before the deadline will be considered a priority and reviewed first, however we will accept applications after the deadline.
