Engineering Management M.S.

All students must meet the Requirements for the Master's Degree

Overview

The Engineering Management Graduate Program offers a Master's of Science (M.S.) degree in engineering management. Each student must meet the general requirements for admission as outlined under the regulations of the University of Vermont Graduate College. Typically, students entering the program have received a bachelor's degree in engineering, engineering management or a related field. Applicants with other backgrounds will be evaluated individually and must complete prescribed undergraduate technical course work. Part- time study leading to the M.S. degree is possible for students who are employed in the vicinity.
