Master of Engineering Management


Master of Engineering Management

The Master of Engineering Management degree, often abbreviated MEM, can be either an academic or professional master's degree that bridges the gap between the field of engineering and the field of business. A variation is the Master of Science in Engineering *and* Management. It is generally pursued by engineers and scientists interested in widening their breadth of knowledge beyond their specific technical field into management and business. It can be earned with a prerequisite bachelor of science in engineering or science or as a post-graduate program with a Bachelor of Engineering Management degree.

The MEM degree normally consists of a number of engineering courses focused on technology, as well as numerous business based classes that tend to mirror the first year of an MBA. The Master of Science in Engineering and Management offers business classes that are specifically tailored for engineering and science professionals who want to be leaders in their organizations. A MEM or MS in Engineering *and* Management graduate walks away with an understanding of the intersection of the fields of business and technology, and is well suited for either a management position within an engineering company or a more technically intensive role in a business setting.

Many of the MEM and MS in Engineering and Management programs are still quite young and the academic field is still in the process of growing.

Master of Engineering Management Programs Consortium

Though there has not been an extensive amount of collaboration among different MEM programs, some of the United States's top schools have established the Master of Engineering Management Programs Consortium to raise awareness about the new emerging program of study. Each program in the consortium has unique characteristics and a different structure in which students complete the degree. Typically programs are taught through a case based method, are focused on team-learning, and incorporate interdisciplinary projects.[1]

The following programs are part of the Master of Engineering Management Consortium:
