Concentrations

The industry demand for engineers equipped with business backgrounds is growing. In addition to these leadership skills, Purdue offers discipline-specific concentrations for qualified candidates who wish to further concentrate their degree. 

Students of the on-campus programs may choose to specialize in the following disciplines:

Aeronautics and Astronautics Management

Engineering Management

Mechanical Engineering Management

 

Aeronautics and Astronautics

In partnership with Purdue’s School of Aeronautics and Astronautics, the division of Engineering Professional Education in the College of Engineering at Purdue University – West Lafayette is pleased to offer two corresponding concentrations for students interested in focusing on the discipline of Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering within the Engineering Management master’s graduate degree program. The non-thesis MSE graduate degree provides students the opportunity to prepare for successful technical leadership careers by providing a unique curriculum of advanced engineering courses and foundational management courses. Students interested in these concentrations should complete a bachelor degree in the discipline of Aeronautics and Astronautics Engineering prior to beginning the program.
