On the new online program news front, this just in from UMass Amherst: their online and blended Master of Science in Engineering Management (MSEM). This ten-course program equips engineers with the fundamental theory, management skills, and practical ideas needed to confidently pursue the growing number of engineering leadership positions across numerous industries.
The UMass Amherst Master of Science in Engineering Management (MSEM) program emphasizes the use of engineering technology and management perspectives to solve complex problems, make decisions, and manage risk, all within the framework of complex systems analysis and design. Participants will graduate ready to lead engineering and interdisciplinary teams, manage and analyze the wealth of data (big data) pervasive in most applications, and deal with risk and uncertainty, so as to make better decisions, design better products and develop more effective processes.
This well rounded, interdisciplinary program includes courses taught by faculty from Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, Electrical Engineering and the internationally acclaimed Isenberg School of Management. The program is thus well suited to engineers from all disciplines as well as business graduates with engineering/analytical inclinations.
The UMass Amherst College of Engineering is ranked the best public engineering school in New England and has a long tradition of distance education (since 1974). All classes in the MSEM program are taught by faculty who are researchers and leaders in their field.
