Program Details

Oakland University offers an online Master of Science in Engineering Management which seeks to impart the knowledge necessary to properly manage environments where technologies are vital to successful operations.  The degree is jointly administered by the ISE Department and the School of Business Administration.  The coursework consists of five to six engineering courses and four to five management courses in a flexible online format.

Oakland University’s online programs combine traditional education with new, innovative technologies that allow for students to complete all or most of their degree through computer coursework.  Online courses share many of the common features of traditional classes such as a teacher, peers, a syllabus, reading material, course activities, and evaluations.  The difference, of course, is that most participation occurs online rather than having face-to-face discussions in a classroom, so, for instance, students would discuss material on a threaded discussion board, or as part of a chat room.  Some students may appreciate a flexible blend of online and on-campus courses.  Online courses are usually synchronous in format (meaning that course work follows the same schedule as on-campus class equivalents and assignments are due on the same dates).

The MS in Engineering Management is a 30 credit hour program.  Four courses in Engineering Productivity are chosen from among: E-Commerce and ERP, Statistical Quality Analysis, Foundations of Systems Engineering I, and Engineering Decision Analysis.  The student also chooses four courses in Management: Financial Accounting, Legal Environment in Business, Financial Management, Marketing Management, Organizational Behavior, and Operations Management. Individuals must choose one elective course in either: Managerial Accounting, Economics for Managers, or any fifth course from the above lists.  The final required course  students must complete is Statistical Methods in Engineering.


The program is for Engineers with a bachelor’s degree from any field of engineering - Industrial and Systems, Mechanical, Electrical, Computer, Civil, etc.  No preparatory courses are required.
