This program provides the foundation and the necessary skills, knowledge, and abilities required to design and manage the technology-based, project-driven enterprise. The program requires thesis research, and the student is expected to identify an advisor and work with him/her starting from the first semester. Fundamentally, the engineering management program focuses on problems, design, and management of projects and complex operations. The program is grounded in solid principles of systems science while exploiting the tools of management science and project management. The coursework is designed to produce graduates capable of addressing issues related to the design, operation, analysis, and transformation of complex problems. Core coursework concentrates on developing the knowledge and skills required by graduates to provide the project and program leadership and management necessary for an organization to develop and manage technologies.
The degree is directed at working professionals and traditional full-time students with technical undergraduate degrees
Courses are scheduled in the evenings
The complete program is available through Old Dominion University’s distance learning program and through the Commonwealth Graduate Engineering Program
Students gain research experience working one on one with a thesis advisor
The course covers general topics that are necessary for project execution. This includes problem scoping, data collection, hypothesis formulation and testing, experimentation, testing and evaluation, qualitative analysis, quantitative analysis, and validation methods.
Introduction to modeling multivariate structural and residual variation, using exploratory data analysis, nonparametric regression, dependence regression, and factor analytic models, with a goal of producing robust, generalizable multivariate models that support research findings. Statistical analyses will be performed in the free general public licensed R statistical software with references to Minitab and SPSS. Prerequisite: ENMA 420.
Research leading to a Master of Science thesis. Prerequisites: ENMA 721 and permission of the Graduate Program Director.
Students entering the Master of Science program in Engineering Management should meet the minimum university admission requirements (Graduate Admission)
