Engineers make valued business leaders

Engineers can become outstanding business leaders. Their technical training makes them effective problem-solvers. They have learned to take bits of information, define the problem, break it down into small parts and develop a solution.

And engineering managers have the influence and the credibility to translate engineering challenges to non-technical executive leadership. This is the path forward you can chart for yourself by earning your Master’s in Engineering Management or a Graduate Certificate in Engineering Management.

Engineering management is a growing field

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics lists a mean annual salary of $152,930 for engineering management positions.
