Career and Academic Opportunities

The Master of Science in Engineering Management is a natural follower of any undergraduate engineering degree. This accelerated pathway will give students a unique preparation for advanced positions in management, such as project manager, engineering manager, production manager, etc. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, salaries for individuals holding an engineering master’s degree are 9 to 13 percent higher than the average salary for engineers with only a bachelor’s degree. This pathway will allow a student to complete their undergraduate and graduate studies within 5 years.
