Master of Science in Engineering Management
University of Massachusetts-Amherst

Program Details

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.
