The Master of Science in Engineering Management program bridges the gaps between the fields of engineering, technology and business with a focus on the art and the science of planning, organizing, allocating, directing, and controlling the activities and resources of organizations engaged in engineering activities and technology development. Northeastern’s interdisciplinary curriculum prepares students with the theoretical, quantitative, and analytical skills and tools you will need to take a leadership position in engineering management and address complex business challenges with innovative, practical, effective solutions.
The Engineering Management program’s mission is to prepare high-potential engineering and science students to become future industry leaders of technology-based organizations by providing foundational knowledge in engineering management. Engineering Management graduates work as project managers, product managers, and in product development roles in technical organizations.
Graduates with this degree may assist companies in taking an idea and working through its development phases to its introduction to the marketplace. Graduates may also be involved in forming and managing teams for assessing cost efficiencies, formulating strategies to improve production, or analyzing a company’s supply chain. Typically, these complex projects cannot be successfully completed without the skills of those possessing a background in management decision-making and engineering expertise therefore, the Engineering Management graduate is often the key technical liaison to management. As a result, many of these responsibilities given to our program graduates have actually proven to be a gateway to upper level management positions.
The Master of Science in Engineering Management program is available at our Boston campus as well as our satellite campuses in Charlotte and Seattle.
