Engineering Management

The graduate plan in Engineering Management (EMGT) leads to the master of science M.S. degree. The Engineering Management plan offers the candidate the opportunity to earn an advanced degree in two years while maintaining full-time employment. The broad EMGT curriculum was designed to prepare students with technical backgrounds to become industry leaders. To achieve this objective, the material is targeted to equip the candidate with the knowledge and skills to better manage projects, processes, personnel, products and services by integrating interdisciplinary courses from the School of Business and the School of Science and Computer Engineering. The individuals with engineering and scientific backgrounds will find that this master of science degree may better suit their needs than the traditional MBA. In June 2007, the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board approved UHCL's addition of a Master of Science in Engineering Management.

The Engineering Management (EMGT) curriculum is composed of 36 hours of graduate course work of which 21 hours will be core requirements and 15 hours will be electives with capstone or thesis option. The 15 hours may be either 12 hours of elective courses with the Capstone Project (three hours) or six hours of elective courses with Thesis (six hours). The program may be completed either online or face-to-face.

Career Opportunities

Graduates of this program qualify for a diverse array of positions requiring both technical and administrative skills in any industry. They may find out opportunities in supervising people who design and develop products, services, systems, and processes as engineering manager, project manager, R&D manager, and process improvement consultant. They might coordinate development, production, operations, quality, testing, or maintenance as operation manager, quality manager (engineer), systems engineer, and system analyst. Graduates with advanced technical and administrative knowledge and strong communication skills will be in one of the best positions to become managers in their disciplines.
