Master of Engineering Management

From planning to completion, engineering managers are involved in nearly every aspect of engineering projects. Engineering managers need strong business administration and leadership abilities in order to supervise employees, manage finances, and ensure the ultimate success of the jobs they oversee. Not only must they demonstrate technical expertise in their particular field, they also require excellent communication skills to coordinate with other managers, contractors, suppliers, and customers in an effective and professional manner.

The demand for leaders in today’s engineering fields is expected to increase, especially in growing areas such as environmental and biomedical engineering. Lawrence Technological University’s Master of Engineering Management is designed for professionals with diverse backgrounds – program management, engineering, quality, manufacturing, production control, management information systems, and other technical fields – who wish to expand their knowledge and advance their career.

You can also receive the same rigorous education we provide in our campus program fully online. Receive your Master of Engineering Management flexibly -- while working full-time -- from the same prestigious, industry expert faculty who teach on our ground campus.
