Program Overview

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.

    School Overview

    The College of Engineering at UMass Amherst is a great place to be. It is ranked as the best public engineering school in New England. We have a physical plant of eight buildings, including our 10-year-old ELab II with modern laboratory spaces, research facilities, computer labs, and graduate offices.

    Enrollment in the College of Engineering has increased by more than 50 percent in the last few years. The average SAT score for this year's entering class is the highest on campus and has significantly increased in recent years. In academic year 2014-2015, there were 107 tenured and tenure-track faculty members in the College of Engineering that includes:

    • 6 endowed professorships in the areas of electrical and computer engineering
    • Entrepreneurship & innovation
    • Measurement science
    • Professional development
    • Renewable energy and
    • Materials science

    Over the last five years, approximately 81% of our graduates have been placed in professional positions or graduate school. An Engineering Career Planning & Student Development Center prepares students for professional opportunities and provides a place where engineering students, faculty, and employers can meet and develop mutually beneficial relationships.
