Offered entirely online since 2000, the national reputation of our program continues to grow as our accomplished faculty and innovative online format gain recognition.


The MS Engineering Management is our program’s principle offering. The Core Curriculum consists of 36 quarter credits in three subject areas: (1) Engineering Management and Leadership; (2) Quantitative Analysis; and (3) Economics, Strategy and Financial Management.  Students may transfer a maximum of 2 core courses (6 credits), and 3 elective courses (9 credits) (equivalent to 10 semester credits) from approved institutions or 2 core courses (6 credits) and 3 elective courses (9 credits) from a previous MS at Drexel, provided they follow the rules and regulations described in the Drexel University Graduate Curricula.

In addition to the required core courses, each MS degree candidate must complete 15 credits of elective courses.  These electives may be offered by Engineering Management or by any other graduate department within the College of Engineering (e.g. Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, etc.).  Engineering Management elective tracks include Infrastructure Management; Marketing and Business Development; Project Management; Systems Engineering; and Engineering Law and Ethics.  Any electives outside of the College of Engineering will acquire approval by the Director.
