Engineering Management Degree

The Engineering Management degree at Grantham University is in high demand, and the description below may prove useful to students who are unsure of what to expect from an engineering management degree course.

An Engineering Management degree signifies an understanding of the specialized form of management concerned mainly with applied engineering with regard to the technical nature of engineering. Programs that terminate in an Engineering Management degree generally include instruction in economics, accounting, finance, and human resources management. Additionally, an Engineering Management degree holder will have studied management information systems, human resources, industrial psychology, and mathematical modeling and optimization. Finally, some adherence to courses in quality control, operation research, safety and health issues, and environmental management are all parts of the course of study that leads to an Electronics Engineering Technology or Engineering Management degree.

The distinction between engineering management and project management and their related degrees is that engineering management deals mainly with the functional management of technical professionals, whereas project management deals with human resources and other general management areas. Both are closely related, and engineering is considered by some to be integral to the definition of project management, and a degree in engineering management is a respected credential among management professionals in many fields.

Training and experience in both business and engineering are key to the successful engineering manager, and the Engineering Management degree provides the first essential steps in learning these. In order for an engineering manager to maintain the respect of his or her technical team and be successful in the market economy, an Engineering Management degree program should provide him or her with the knowledge necessary to navigate both the interpersonal management relationships and the markets adroitly. Often the Engineering Management degree holder will, later in life, manage engineers who are driven by creative thinking and forces other than market strategy, and they therefore require the skills to coach, motivate, and even mentor technical professionals.

Grantham University is a great choice for those seeking an online Engineering Management degree because all of Grantham’s courses are taught online and are available at any time with no required log-in times. While each course has milestones that must be completed by a specific deadline, Engineering Management degree seekers at Grantham University may choose to study and submit their coursework at any time prior to the deadline, anywhere Internet access is available.
