Master Engineering Management

Curriculum Overview

The Master Engineering Management (MEM) is a 30-credit hour degree with a curriculum that aims to transform engineers into exceptional leaders in their field. The integrative curriculum includes core courses that teach business leadership, engineering management, finance and accounting for engineers, technology strategy and innovation management, and visual data analysis. This unique curriculum is made possible by combining courses taught by faculty experts from the College of Engineering, John Glenn College of Public Affairs, and The Fisher College of Business.

Students have the opportunity to earn Six Sigma Certification in addtition to the MEM degree if they complete ISE 5810 Lean Sigma Foundations as an elective course. Yellow, Green, or even Black Belt can be earned dependent upon previous Six Sigma projects completed. Contact the program for more information.
