Master of Engineering (M.Eng.) in Engineering Management

Even though engineers play a critical role in business success and business products, the language of engineering doesn’t always translate well into the world of business. This can be a challenge because engineering projects most often need the support of business functions—and management—to get off the drawing board.

A degree in Engineering Management combines management skills with engineering knowledge, making you uniquely suited to oversee teams of other engineers working on highly technical tasks and serve as the bridge between technical roles and management. Engineers are already among the most well-compensated professionals in the world earning an average salary of $80,673; however, those who wish to move even further up the pay scale, can opt for this degree program.

An M.Eng. in Engineering Management opens up a whole raft of new career opportunities for engineering graduates. Engineering manager jobs include roles in project management, engineering sales and marketing, and senior management positions across many different types of organizations and industries. Something to consider with this degree is you’ll likely be moving toward a more managerial role rather than an engineering.
