Cornell University

The Masters of Engineering in Engineering Management offered by Cornell University is one of the top ranked MENG programs. Cornell's Master of Engineering program in Engineering Management is designed to serve engineers from all disciplines, and focuses on integrating technical analysis with managerial decision making.

The MEng degree at Cornell originated in the mid-1960, as the transition from a 5-year engineering degree to a standard 4-year undergraduate program was made. The MEng degree was viewed as an alternative to the Master of Science degree, focusing more on professional practice, and able to be completed in one year of full-time study. The MEng degree structure offered an ideal framework for creation of the Engineering Management program.

Why MENG: The Master of Engineering is a professional degree, designed to give engineers more advanced engineering skills along with teamwork and communication skills that enable them to move into engineering careers at a higher level. The College of Engineering offers master's degrees in 15 fields, with the flexibility to include coursework in other scientific and technical fields.

The MBA adds knowledge and skill in all the business functions along with a general management perspective. The combination of these degrees prepares engineers to advance through product development and engineering management roles to higher levels of business leadership.
