Accelerated Engineering Management

Target Audience

This program is designed for engineers looking to deepen their knowledge in both technical and professional competencies. This program will broaden students engineering knowledge in systems engineering and business leadership.

Academic Outline

This non-thesis program is designed to be completed in one year. As a student earning the MSE degree, you will have no preset plan* of study. Instead, you will work with your faculty advisory committee to develop a plan of study that fits your overall goals.

*Specializations in Aeronautics and Astronautics and Mechanical Engineering are available for these programs.

Learning Outcomes from the MSE

  • Ability to design and develop products and processes at the systems level
  • Ability to ensure quality of products or processes through design and development
  • Ability to make sound engineering decisions
  • Increased technical depth within a specified area of engineering
  • Ability to communicate, negotiate, and lead within a global engineering enterprise
  • Ability to manage and lead engineering organizations and people

Typical Plan of Study

Semester 1 / Fall / On Campus 12 credits of coursework
(6 Engineering + 6 Management)
Semester 2 / Spring / On Campus 12 credits of coursework
(6 Engineering + 6 Management)
Semester 3 / Summer / On Campus 6 units of coursework
Plans of study for the specializations in Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering may vary.

Specific Course Requirements
This concentration requires the student to select 9-12 credit hours of coursework from among the following four courses. These courses are meant to further develop professional skills and competencies. Students will select courses based on their prior background and interests, and the availability of the courses in a given term.

  • Accounting For Managers
  • Marketing Management
  • Strategic Management
  • Operations Management

This concentration also requires a minimum of 9 credit hours of study from Systems Engineering Courses. Students will make specific selections of systems engineering courses to meet this 9 credit hour requirement based on their career background and goals. A minimum of 9 hours must be in a single engineering discipline (ECE, ME, IE, etc.).*
