Lead teams. Develop products. Pitch your ideas.
Engineering managers oversee projects, product design, and development, operations; create strategic plans; handle budgets, costs, and financing; and interface with marketing. Bridge the gap between engineering and business by completing a comprehensive business curriculum and taking additional courses in science, engineering, and math.
Develop emerging technologies through the IT Oxygen Enterprise and get paid for it. Pitch product ideas in competitions both on and off campus. Gain experience developing a business from the ground up through Husky Innovate. Meet mentors, including Michigan Tech alumni. Introduce yourself to employers at Industry Days (and in Silicon Valley during spring break). Join the National Organization for Business and Engineering, or one of our other professional business organizations. Your experiences here will set you apart.
Our engineering management major is a rare find—there's only one other program like it in the state of Michigan and just 28 nationally that are recognized by the American Society for Engineering Management. Here, you'll harness the full power of Michigan Tech engineering as you gain management skills in small classes from professors with industry experience. Plus, you can earn a master’s in one additional year through ourAccelerated Master’s program.
