Engineering Management

Program Details

The Master of Science in Engineering Management is an online degree offered by Robert Morris University. This program aims to prepare its graduates with the skills and knowledge needed to demonstrate an advanced level of intellectual achievement in the context of engineering projects. Students should be able to combine theory and practice in the design and development of engineering management systems. Engineering management professionals should have the ability to apply engineering principles and the skills needed to organize and direct technical projects and people in technical jobs.

There are two separate tracks a student may choose from when enrolled in this program. The Thesis Option track involves writing and defending a thesis in an appropriate area of interest. The Non-Thesis Option involves students taking more courses in order to learn more practical skills in engineering management.

The required courses of the Thesis Option are: Engineering Cost Estimation and Financial Analysis, Engineering Systems Analysis and Design, and Project Engineering and Management. In addition, 15 directed electives in Engineering and Non-engineering courses are required. A minimum of six credits of applied research is required for the student’s thesis. Students who opt for the Non-Thesis Option have the same required courses. However, since they are not writing a thesis, these students must take 21 additional electives in Engineering and Non-engineering courses.

These courses of study intend for students to be able to take on positions of increased responsibility such as project leaders, chief engineers, engineering supervisors, directors of engineering, project managers, production managers, and systems managers.
