“The Master of Engineering Management degree program provided me with increased knowledge, leadership, management, engineering, and financial skills so that I may continually advance in my career." Kathy Zadick, MEM'07, North American Financial Staff, General Motors Corp.



From planning to completion, engineering managers are involved in nearly every aspect of engineering projects. They need strong business administration and leadership abilities in order to supervise employees, manage finances, and ensure the ultimate success of the jobs they oversee. Not only must they demonstrate technical expertise in their particular field, they also require excellent communication skills to coordinate with other managers, contractors, suppliers, and customers in an effective and professional manner.

The demand for leaders in today's engineering fields is expected to increase, especially in growing areas such as environmental and biomedical engineering. Lawrence Technological University's Master of Engineering Management is designed for professionals with diverse backgrounds - program management, engineering, quality, manufacturing, production control, management information systems, and other technical fields - who wish to expand their knowledge and advance their careers.
