The curriculum examines fundamental leadership and business administration skills that can be applied directly to engineering projects.

Through a blend of engineering, mathematics, and business electives, you can build a fully customized, flexible plan of study that suits your career goals and desired outcomes. Choose from the following options:

  • Project Option: Gain hands-on experience by developing a practical research project with guidance from a faculty advisor.
  • Coursework Option: Complete the program requirements entirely through your choice of electives, with online classes available in areas such as quality engineering, data science, optimization, supply chain management, and life cycle management.

On either pathway, you can expect a nuanced, state-of-the-art, expert perspective on strategies for maintaining operational efficiency in an engineering environment.

Rankings for the University of Arizona include being named a “Best Buy” school by Fiske Guide to Colleges. In addition, the university is also one of the nation’s top producers of Fulbright Scholars.


For those who are interested in a leadership role within a technology-based organization, but not pursuing a full master’s degree, the online Graduate Certificate in Engineering Management is a perfect fit.

As a student of the program, you'll examine financial modeling and project management as they apply to industries driven by engineering. You'll also gain technical experience in working with the latest software and technical tools used by companies around the globe to lead advanced, real-world projects.

If you decide to continue on to your master’s degree after earning your certificate, you can share a portion of the course credits. Conversely, if you are interested in earning a master’s degree and graduate certificate concurrently, you can stack the programs and share the required certificate credits.
