The Engineering Management Program focuses on developing an individual’s engineering, science and management skills so they can succeed in a technology driven environment. There is a growing need for engineers that can build multi-disciplinary design teams, then lead those teams to solve technical and business challenges. The Iowa State University Master of Engineering in Engineering Management Program is designed to train leaders who can meet both the technical and managerial challenges in developing modern complex engineered systems. The program can be completed on line or in residence, part-time or full-time.
Unrestricted admission requires (1) a 3.0 grade point average from an ABET accredited undergraduate engineering program, (2) two years of engineering experience or current full-time employment as an engineer, (3) calculus, engineering statistics, and engineering economy. A GRE is not required for this program.
Applicants for admission to the Engineering Management Program apply through the Graduate College at Iowa State University. Each applicant must submit:
- Application and application fee
- Official academic transcripts
- Three letters of recommendation
Applications should be submitted as early as possible before the beginning of the semester for which admission is sought. Individuals may also take up to 9 credits at Iowa State as a non-degree seeking student and then transfer them to the program when they are admitted.
The Master of Engineering in Engineering Management Program at Iowa State University is focused on supporting working professionals so teaching or research assistantships typically are not available.
