School Selection Criteria

There are a number of things to consider when looking for engineering management schools.

  • Prospective students should look for accreditation by either the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) or the American Society for Engineering Management (ASEM).
  • Students may wish to seek typical core courses, such as engineering economics, operations management and statistics.
  • It's important to review the graduate employment rates to ensure that the program is recognized by employers.
  • Some schools offer only graduate programs while others offer degrees at all levels, and it's important to determine whether you want to pursue undergraduate or graduate studies in this field when choosing a school.

Engineering Management Certificates

Many engineering management certificate programs either include a project management course or are called project management programs. Some schools classify this certificate as graduate level and require a bachelor's degree plus work experience for admittance. Students should use caution when investigating these programs because neither ASEM nor ABET accredits them.

Bachelor's Degrees in Engineering Management

At the bachelor's level, some schools group engineering management with another field, such as industrial engineering or manufacturing. A degree program may be called, for example, management and engineering for manufacturing.

Master's Degrees in Engineering Management

Those who already work in engineering and are looking to advance to a leadership position should consider a master's degree. While most master's degrees are 2-year programs, some programs can be completed in one year.

Engineering management programs are available at many reputable institutions. Some schools only offer graduate programs, while others offer graduate and undergraduate degrees in this field.
