The Engineering Management Program at University of Idaho is designed for engineering professionals moving into technical management roles. The Program is multidisciplinary, supported by faculty in the colleges of engineering, business, and science. Students will explore the analytical, technical, and human resource aspects of managing in a technical environment. Students will have the opportunity to expand their knowledge in their chosen field of expertise. Since the vast majority of engineers assume management roles sometime during their career, this degree program is typically pursued on a part-time basis by working engineers. Classes are offered by resident and adjunct faculty in Idaho Falls, Boise, and Moscow. All courses required for the program are available for distance learners through the College of Engineering’s Engineering Outreach Program eo.uidaho.edu/.

The College of Engineering offers a M.Engr. (non-thesis) degree in Engineering Management. Admission to the program is based on: ability to complete graduate-level work evidenced by undergraduate transcripts; a B.S. in Engineering from an ABET/EAC accredited program, TOEFL score higher than 550 for International students, at least 2 years of engineering work experience beyond B.S. degree or currently employed as an engineer, and three letters of recommendation. One of the three letters of recommendation must be from a current or former employer.
