Master of Science in
ENGINEERING MANAGEMENT

Program Description

The MS in Engineering Management is designed for graduate engineers aspiring to advance into management careers within technological organizations. In a global economy, it is vital for companies to hire and develop new talent that can bridge communication gaps in many contexts.

Our students are trained to lead multi-disciplinary teams and translate customer needs into new engineering technologies. In a global context, our students are adept at finding common ground and fostering international ties to create new ideas and perspectives. Our students gain an understanding of project management, finance, technical sales & marketing, law for engineers, decision-making under uncertainty. Our program focuses on creating leaders who are able to adapt to dynamic business environments.

Additional Entry Requirements

To be eligible for admission to the Engineering Management program, you must have:

Undergraduate training in mathematics, physics, computing, and mathematical modeling. Specifically, all incoming students are expected to meet the following fundamental requirements:

1) four semesters of mathematics, beginning with a two-semester sequence in calculus,

2) three semesters of calculus-based physics and general engineering science,

3) one semester of computing (e.g., an introductory course using a high-level language such as Java, C++, C#, Visual Basic, C, or Python).

Most undergraduate programs in science and engineering provide the required background. Students deficient in one or a small number of these areas may be admitted into the MS program on Provisional Status.

During the first semester, students who are on Provisional Status will need to take courses to address the deficiencies. As soon as deficiencies are removed, students are advanced to the regular graduate status. 

Demonstrate satisfactory understanding of Introduction to Probability and Statistics. Applicants are expected to have an undergraduate GPA of 3.00 on the last 60 units of course work.

Program Learning Outcomes

The MS Engineering Management degree program is intended to produce graduates who are able to assume management responsibility in technology based organizations. This Program is in response to student and employer demand for a Program to teach management skills to graduate engineers with little or no background in business related knowledge.

Students completing the program are expected to be able to apply the methodology and tools of this engineering discipline to further their careers into increasing responsible management positions. Most engineers graduate with limited business related skills which limit advancement opportunities in technology based companies. Students are expected to learn technology management skills including financial modeling, technical marketing, law, decision-making under uncertainty, and project management.

By completion of the MS program in Engineering Management, a student will:

(a) acquire in-depth knowledge within a particular area of study and complementary knowledge from a related area in Systems and Industrial Engineering

(b) conduct an original research (formulating a problem, developing a model, and finding a solution based on the analysis) 

(c) effectively communicate ideas and results via written and verbal communication.

Teaching & Assessment

The method of teaching is lecture/seminar, and guided projects. The modules will be taught by AUM faculty members. Students will be offered a range of pedagogical experiences, including readings and discussion, lectures, case studies, critical analysis, writing assignments, and projects. The emphasis will vary depending on the subject matter of the module.

Assessments

Engineering disciplines require strong mathematics skills.  Assessments (in-class examinations, homework and individual and team projects) will focus on those skills.  In general, grades will be assigned based on performance on those assessments.

Career Oportunities

Director of Hardware Engineering at a computer design firm.

Process Engineering Manager at a car manufacturing plant.

Senior Operations/Systems Analyst at a digital technology firm.
