Our Goal: Train Tech Industry Leaders
We provide to a select group of high-potential students with science and engineering backgrounds an engineering management curriculum that is:
- State of the art
Flexibility: Students have a flexible choice of electives, ranging from master's courses in specific engineering disciplines, to engineering management courses, to courses offered through the Fuqua School of Business*, plus a variety of flexible program options.
Focus Areas of Study: Students may choose to take electives in a given area of study to begin to develop an expertise.
- Support: Students choose Duke because of the personal support students receive, the flexibility we offer so that students get the most out of the program, the many resources available to students, and all the things Duke has to offer outside of the classroom.
State of the Art
- Interdisciplinary: Integration of business, law, and engineering with the support of the Fuqua School of Business and the Duke School of Law.
- Workshops: Regularly scheduled workshops on topics such as presentation delivery and writing skills allow students to further develop marketable business knowledge in a personalized, interactive environment.
- Team-based Learning: Students work together to develop solutions that could not have been attained individually.
- Case Study Method: Cases place students in a complex business situation where they must analyze a variety of options and propose a course of action based on the concepts that have been taught.
- Seminars: Seminars offer students the opportunity to interact with top industry leaders and are designed to expose students to different aspects of business and industry.
* Fuqua School of Business courses are offered on a space-available basis with instructor consent. Fuqua courses are offered in six-week terms rather than semesters, and Master of Engineering Management students are limited to one (1) Fuqua course per term, two per semester. Fuqua courses require a separate registration process from that of engineering courses.
Duke is a founding member of the Master of Engineering Management Programs Consortium (MEMPC), a small group of highly recognized university graduate level programs in engineering management.
