Get Started in 3 Steps

Step 1: On-Campus? Online? Certificate? Which is Better for Me?

NC State’s Master of Engineering Management Program offers three options, on-campus, online and certificate programs. But which one is the right one for you? Each provides an excellent educational experience with many benefits. Before choosing a program, discover which method best suits your learning style and personality.

Choose a Program that Best Fits your Lifestyle

On-Campus Program

A traditional classroom allows you to meet face-to-face with your professor and classmates. Since you most likely attended class in-person from elementary through high school, this environment requires you to make the least adjustment.

There are reasons why on-campus learning has remained the traditional classroom experience. It allows you to quickly build community, get your questions answered right there and then as well as keep a structured schedule.

With resources such as video conferencing, online forums and constant communication, you have more ways to learn than ever.

One of the most notable benefits of online education is having a flexible schedule. Also, it deepens your self-discipline and motivational skills. This program allows you to connect with classmates from potentially all over the world.

Certificate Program

The Engineering Management Foundations Graduate Certificate is a 12 credit hour graduate program. By design, successful certificate completion would cover 40 percent of the MEM degree. Further, the certificate curriculum intentionally requires little to no prerequisites.

After starting the certificate program, if you decide to transfer to the Master of Engineering Management degree program, your credits may qualify.
