What will I learn?

The Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department administers two emphases under the Master of Science in Engineering.

Management Engineering Emphasis

A special management perspective is required for the successful generation of technical products and services. In order to plan, design, direct and control technical projects, technical managers must be capable of inspiring and developing professional personnel. They must be able to integrate planning, manufacturing and budgetary concerns of the project and be able to easily communicate with general management.

This emphasis primarily admits students with a traditional engineering background. It emphasizes the management of engineering-based endeavors and does not require undergraduate business courses as prerequisites for graduate work. An individualized program is developed according to student's undergraduate degree, area of interest, or industrial application; interdisciplinary approaches are encouraged.
