Nearly every industry needs managers, and engineering is no exception. While managers at engineering firms are often engineers themselves, being a good manager takes a different skill set than being a good engineer. Engineers interested in management may want to acquire the necessary business knowledge by earning a Master of Engineering Management (MEM) degree.
Arkansas State University (A-State) offers their engineering management program online as well as on campus. The online program is essentially identical to the on-campus program, with the same curriculum and faculty. Designed for completion in as few as 14 months, the online MEM program debuted in the spring of 2016 and accommodates working professionals who want to continue their education and advance in their careers.
Earning a degree online offers a level of flexibility and convenience that can make a significant difference in the working student’s ability to earn while they learn. Following the success of the original on-campus engineering management program and the reputation it has for quality and value, the online option was the logical next step for A-State to continue meeting the needs of its students.
A-State’s MEM program prepares graduates for careers in engineering management. Stated goals for the program include students gaining skills in planning and decision-making, learning to identify and solve engineering management issues, understanding and being able to apply statistical concepts and methods, and learning to succeed as part of multi-disciplinary management teams.
Since its founding in 1909, A-State has grown into the second-largest university in Arkansas. Educating leaders, enhancing intellectual growth and enriching lives form the core of its mission. The university offers degrees up to and including the doctoral level in a wide range of subjects.
A-State’s online degree program is one of the oldest in the state. The university’s goal is to offer fully accredited degree programs to students who wish to study online, giving them an affordable, convenient and viable way to advance their education and their chosen careers. A-State’s engineering management program is a valuable part of this goal.
