Masters of Science in Engineering Management (MSEM) program

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. 

The MSEM program of study is multidisciplinary, combining elements of advanced study in various engineering disciplines with studies in business, system operations and organizational behavior. Through a flexible curriculum and concentrations, the MSEM program enables concentration areas such as Energy Systems, Lean Six Sigma, Logistics and Supply Chains, and Systems Analytics.

Infrastructure and Environmental Systems (INES) Ph.D. program

The Ph.D. program in Infrastructure and Environmental Systems offers an interdisciplinary study opportunity for students from systems and industrial engineering, operations research and engineering management and related fields. The doctoral students following the systems optimization and management track can develop the analytical skills and business sense necessary to optimize and manage the complex interaction within infrastructure and/or environmental systems. Students must take core courses, focus area elective courses, directed studies and dissertation credits to support doctoral research. The general research areas include but are not limited to: Logistics and Supply Chains; Lean Six Sigma; Energy Systems; Sustainable Systems Modeling; and Systems Modeling and Analytics.
