Master of Science in Engineering Management

Engineers on Runway at DFW

The Master of Science in Engineering Management is a STEM program designed to introduce both engineering and business tools to engineering professionals who will be moving into leadership positions in product development, strategic planning, or managing the organization’s technology resources. Graduates develop an understanding of how to use an organization’s technical knowledge, skills, and abilities to meet their strategic objectives.

Successful applicants to the Engineering Management Master of Science program typically have a bachelor's or Master's degree in engineering or science with a minimum GPA of 3.0 in the last 60 credits of their bachelor's program. Strong math skills are helpful. Successful applicants also have a minimum TOEFL of 79, a minimum GRE of 301 (quantitative of 155 and verbal of 146). Letters of recommendation are not required for the program.

Due to the difficulties in taking standardized tests during the coronavirus pandemic, the program has waived the GRE requirement for applicants for the spring and fall 2021 semesters.
