The Master of Engineering degree is a coursework and project-oriented program.

Curriculum Structure

In addition to the required courses, each student’s program must include at least one course (minimum 3 credits) in individual and/or organizational behavior and 9-credits worth of electives selected to provide a track area of specialization.

To help meet these requirements, we have put together seven track areas of specialization plus a “build your own track” tied to common career paths of Engineering Management degree graduates.

Specialization Tracks

  • "Build your own" track
  • Consulting
  • Analytics
  • Product Management and Entrepreneurship
  • Engineering Leadership
  • Real Estate and Construction Management
  • Renewable Energy and Sustainability

Any 5000 or 6000-level College of Engineering non-seminar technical 3 credits or higher course is acceptable. You are also welcome to mix and match courses from different headings or choose courses aligned with your own interests to best serve your professional goals.
