Degrees Offered: Master of Science in Engineering Management
By drawing on the diverse resources available through the university and surrounding industry, the M.S. in Engineering Management program develops engineers and other technically trained individuals for leadership roles in a technologically-based, project-oriented enterprise.

Focus on interdisciplinary course work and research provides students with an advanced background in both the theoretical and practical aspects of managing technical/engineering projects and programs via case studies, role playing, and course work. The engineering management program faculty bring to the classroom a critical blend of practical and academic experience.

Master of Science in Engineering Management
The program is particularly valuable to individuals who have a number of years of experience in industry, government, and service organizations, or those who have been entrepreneurs. It provides these professionals with broad-based knowledge and skills to succeed as organizational managers and project managers, from conceptualization through implementation.

Admission Requirements:
Eligibility for admission requires completion of an undergraduate degree in engineering, the sciences or a closely related area. Students are expected to have achieved an undergraduate GPA of at least 2.8 on a 4.0 scale. Students not satisfying the above requirement will be considered for conditional admission on a case-by-case basis. In some cases, a bridge program will be required to qualify for matriculation.

Bridge Program: Students who lack appropriate academic preparation may be required to take courses in the areas of statistics, cost analysis and engineering economics.

Graduate Certificate Program: A 12-credit graduate certificate in Construction Management, Operations Productivity, Pharmaceutical Management or Project Management is available as a step toward this degree. Please see Graduate Certificates in this catalog for further information. For more information about continuing and distance education, please contact the Division of Continuing Professional Education, 1-800-624-9850 or 973-596-3060; email: cpe@njit.edu.

Off-Campus Programs: At extension and corporate sites, NJIT offers sufficient courses to fulfill all degree requirements. NJIT faculty teach all courses. For locations, see Extension Programs in this catalog. The university's distance learning arm, ACCESS/NJIT, offers this program (as well as part of the bridge program described above) to qualified students who have access to the Internet and a VCR. In addition, distance-based, 12-credit graduate certificates in Construction Management, Operations Productivity, Pharmaceutical Management or Project Management, are available as a step toward this degree. See Graduate Certificates in this catalog. For further information about extension programs, ACCESS/NJIT programs, and graduate certificates, call the associate vice president of continuing and distance education, Division of Continuing Professional Education, 1 (800) 624-9850 or (973) 596-3060; email cpe@njit.edu.

Degree Requirements:
The program requires 30 credits, 18 of which are taken in a required core. A purpose of the core is to provide knowledge in the functional areas that are the cornerstones of the discipline: organization and people management, cost management, and systems management. The remaining 12 credits are elective courses, which may be within an area of specialization to meet the individual's specific professional and personal objectives. A 3-credit project (IE 700) or a 6-credit thesis (IE 701) are optional electives. In some cases, students may select courses to enhance their technical competency. In other cases, individuals may select courses to prepare for a change in responsibilities or job function. At least half of the elective courses must be selected from those having an IE or EM prefix.
