Master of Science in Engineering Management
Florida Tech offers a Masters in Engineering Management for engineers seeking to enhance their technical expertise and lead dynamic work teams. This degree gives individuals a unique blend of engineering and business expertise, preparing them with the leadership skills they need to oversee complex technical projects.
The Masters in Engineering Management degree focuses on both technical learning in specific engineering disciplines and different elements of project management (such as cost schedules and delivery requirements) that lead or supervising engineers must understand to perform successfully in the corporate environment. Flexible course offerings and evening class hours make balancing professional and academic obligations more convenient.
Interdisciplinary, Flexible Curriculum
The Masters in Engineering Management program is interdisciplinary in nature, allowing students to work with faculty and other students from a variety of engineering disciplines. Since most students are already industry professionals, the learning environment is mature, cooperative and designed for students to work in teams to learn important business practices such as global differences in business ethics and cultural sensitivities. Students become familiar with interacting with people from various technological backgrounds–a skill desired by employers.
Because of the small student-to-teacher ratio, there is a closer and more professional connection between students and teachers at Florida Tech. The Masters in Engineering Management faculty brings years of industry experience to the classroom, providing students with a real-world understanding of the engineering environment. As a result, the professional environment, without student/faculty barriers, makes complicated concepts and projects easier to present and more effectively understood. Professors also involve students in research and internship experiences.
Florida Tech's research university status ensures that Masters in Engineering Management program students have the tools and facilities to conduct research in their preferred area of interest. Team assignments are an essential part of the program, with students tackling problems and challenges that are not merely theoretical in nature, but which are practical issues regularly encountered in industry. These up-to-date tools and techniques enhance a student's ability in decision-making and problem solving, which creates stronger, more effective leaders. The advanced research centers and laboratories are home to essential engineering equipment and software.
Masters in Engineering Management graduates are well prepared for careers in high-tech fields and firms around the world or career advancement opportunities within their current organization. Because of Florida Tech's proximity to world-renowned engineering firms, many graduates enjoy careers by companies such as NASA, Harris, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, General Electric, Rockwell Collins and DRS.
