In addition to the general requirements for admission to the Graduate School, the Systems Engineering and Engineering Management department seeks the following:

Either a bachelor’s degree in engineering or a closely related technical or scientific field, or a bachelor’s degree in business, provided relevant technical course requirements have been met

  • Undergraduate coursework in engineering economics, calculus, and statistics.

Students missing any of the prerequisite courses should register for EMGT 6101- Engineering Management Fundamentals (3 credits) offered online in the second summer session. This course satisfies the prerequisite requirement but does not count toward the 12 credit hours in the certificate.

  • An average GPA of 3.0 (out of 4.0)
  • Applicants should submit written description of any relevant and significant work experience. 
  • Applicants whose native language is not English, will need to satisfy the UNC Charlotte Graduate School’s English proficiency requirements.
  • Early-Entry Program - Undergraduate students with a GPA of 3.2 or above and with at least 75 semester hours completed toward a baccalaureate degree in Engineering, or Engineering Technology at UNC Charlotte may be admitted as an early-entry student provided they meet all other requirements of admission except the earned bachelor’s degree.
