On-Campus Program

A traditional classroom allows you to meet face-to-face with your professor and classmates. It also puts you in the heart of Raleigh, the RTP and the incredible tech companies in the area.

There are reasons why on-campus learning has remained the traditional classroom experience. It allows you to build community quickly, get your questions answered immediately, and 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. This allows you to balance working full-time with this program. Also, it allows you to connect with classmates from all over the world.

Certificate Program

The Engineering Management offers two 12-credit-hour graduate certificate programs, Engineering Management Foundations and Analytics. By design, successful certificate completion would cover 40 percent of the MEM degree. Further, the certificate curriculum
intentionally requires a few prerequisites and can be done online or in person.

As an added benefit, if you decide to transfer to the Master of Engineering Management Degree Program, your credits may qualify.
