Master of Science in Engineering Management: Professional Engineering Management Cohort Program

At eli², we offer programs that are designed to transform early and mid-career engineers, technologists, and scientists into team leaders, lead systems engineers, and project managers. The demand for competent graduate engineers with capabilities to undertake complex multidisciplinary product and services development will require visionary leaders who can understand business realities, effectively lead people, and understand technology to deliver innovative solutions.

UCF offers two paths at the graduate level to meet these needs: the traditional Master’s of Science degree in Engineering Management (MSEM); and a unique program called the Professional Engineering Management Program (PEMP).

The MSEM is a traditional program with classes are held at UCF and online during regular academic semesters.  This program is offered by the UCF Department of Industrial  Engineering and Management Systems (IEMS).

In concert with IEMS, eli2 offers a Professional Engineering Management Program (PEMP) designed for the early and mid-career working professional.  This two-year cohort-based program offers a customized and personalized approach to learning engineering management with a curriculum developed based upon the needs of industry.  The program is designed as lock-step, cohort based,  and to be completed in under 2 years. Classes of up to 36 students meet every other week at the Rosen Campus of UCF. This program will provide graduates with many of the necessary methods, processes, and tools to deliver and manage complex systems, improve on-the-job performance, and maximize an organization’s success.  You will integrate project delivery processes through leadership, new product development, systems engineering, cost and decision analysis, and project management. Over 75% of our alumni have reported career advancement after participating in the program.
