The Master of Science in Engineering Management (MSEM) degree program prepares professionals for careers in managing projects, programs, systems, and organizations. Industrial, research, consulting, and commercial firms now demand engineering managers with both cutting-edge technical competence and the management skills necessary to forge linkages with the systems and business sides of these organizations. These managers must be able to form and manage high-performance teams and manage business and technological operations.
CU’s MSEM degree is the technical alternative to the MBA. The program is multidisciplinary, combining elements of advanced study in various engineering disciplines with studies of business managers that combine management and engineering savvy, making them unique and highly sought-after employees for a wide range of businesses.
