Master of Science in Engineering Management or Master of Engineering Management (MSEM or MEM) is a professional master's degree that bridges the gap between the field of engineering or technology and the field of business management. Engineering management is a multidisciplinary field that involves the application of business methods and management expertise to technology companies and products or engineering processes.[citation needed]

Also known as "the Engineer's MBA", the degree is generally pursued by engineers and scientists interested in management and business.[1]

The MSEM or MEM degree includes coursework[2] in topics such as new product development, experience design and leadership.

It can be earned with a prerequisite in engineering or as a post-graduate program to a Bachelor of Science degree.

Master of Engineering Management Programs Consortium (MEMPC)[edit]

Though there has not been an extensive amount of collaboration among different MEM programs, some of the United States's top schools have established the Master of Engineering Management Programs Consortium (MEMPC) to raise awareness about the new emerging program of study. Typically programs are taught through a case based method, are focused on team-learning, and incorporate interdisciplinary projects.[3]
