The MEM degree is typically tailored to meet the desired educational objectives of each individual student in consultation with an advisor. The following are examples of typical program options. Substitutions and/or modifications to the courses on each of these programs can be accomplished with the approval of the student's advisor.
- M.E.M. for Industrial Engineering
- M.E.M. for Quality Management
- M.E.M. for Construction Project Management
- M.E.M. for Environmental Management
- M.E.M. for Chemical Engineering
- M.E.M. for Electrical Engineering
- M.E.M. for Industrial Project Management
- M.E.M. for Mechanical Engineering
Business Administration - 6 to 18 hours of 5000 level courses from ACCT, BCOM, BULW, ECON, FINC, MKTG, MGMT, previously approved by the program advisor. Enrollment in some courses could require pre-approval by the offering department or instructor.
Technical Discipline - 6 to 18 hours of 5000 level courses in ENGR, CVEN, CHEN, ELEN, INEN, MEEN, MISY, COSC, CMGT previously approved by the program advisor. Enrollment in some courses could require pre-approval by the offering department or instructor.
Must satisfactorily complete a final, comprehensive exam.
For students in the MEM program with non-engineering backgrounds, the following pre-requisite courses are mandatory and must be completed in addition to their corresponding program of study:
1. Calculus I
2. A math course beyond Calculus I (Calculus II, Differential Equations or Linear Algebra)
3. Computer programming course or experience programming in a computer language (C++, Java, Visual Basic, or similar) or, one probability and/or statistics course or, one semester of Calculus based Physics
4. Two additional courses with significant math, programming, science or engineering material. Examples of courses to satisfy this requirement include Physics II, any computer programming courses, statics or mechanics, circuits, upper division physics courses, Operations Research, any upper division chemistry course, upper division engineering courses, Quantitative Finance, Econometrics, any courses with a Calculus pre-requisite, and human factors / ergonomics courses. Approval of these courses is based on the admission committee recommendation. Most students with STEM undergraduates will satisfy this requirement without additional courses.
Additional pre- requisite courses might be assigned by the admission committee based on the student’s area of study and background. Any courses taken as pre-requisites will not count towards the hours of the degree.
For students of the Master of Engineering Management, the academic departments offering courses in specific technical areas (Electrical engineering, Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Engineering) could require additional undergraduate courses before enrolling in graduate level courses. Non-engineering background M.E.M. students will request authorization to enroll from each academic department as needed.
Course work requirements
Students with non-engineering backgrounds must also take a design course (CIMS or other). Students without engineering background may be admitted into the MEM program if the pre-requisite courses have been taken in their previous degrees. If the pre-requisites have not been taken, students without engineering background may be admitted into the MEM program with contingency on these pre-requisites passed with a minimum of Grade B during the graduate study. The final interpretation of the pre-requisite courses is privilege of the MEM admission committee.
