  • Why Apply?

    Engineers with the right blend of technical and management skills are among the most sought-after professionals in the field. The rapid pace of technology and new disruptors continue to shape whole industries in ways to make processes easier and more efficient. The Master of Science in Engineering Management, with a focus on Information Technology answers the call for more professionals to help streamline the flow of data, systems and operations to make businesses more profitable.

    Graduates of the program will be able to pursue management positions in a wide range of functions, including product design, development and innovation, R&D, engineering management, general management, operations, project management, IT, software development, marketing and sales. In addition to logistics, trade and supply chain management, graduates can pursue careers in manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, information systems, telecommunications and energy.

    Industry Statistics

    According to the U.S. Department of Labor Statistics, employment for logistics engineers is expected to grow by 22 percent through 2022, much faster than the average for all occupations. Employment growth will be driven by the vital role logistics plays in the transportation of goods in a global economy. As supply and distribution systems become increasingly complex, employment for logistics engineers is expected to grow rapidly as companies look for managers with business and technical expertise to manage the entire product lifecycle — from operations to costs to scheduling to transportation.

    In 2012, the median annual wages for information security analysts was $72,780, with the top 10 percent — those with the most experience and advance training — earning more than $112,100 (Occupational Handbook, Bureau of Labor Statistics).
