Distance Degree Requirements
The core of the Distributed Master of Engineering Management program consists of four engineering management courses developed in partnership with the Duke School of Law and the Fuqua School of Business. In conjunction with the core courses, four technical elective courses provide additional expertise in areas of individual student interest. Two electives are selected from one of three Focus Areas: Operations Management, Financial Engineering, or Innovation and Commercialization. Focus areas allow students to demonstrate a command of knowledge in one specialty.
d-MEMP students have the option of attending classes on site at any time. The opportunities to interact with residential MEM students include physical class attendance, project collaboration, and class assignment partnering through teleconferencing, student forums and other media alternatives.
To receive a d-MEMP degree, the student must complete:
- Three Residencies: Orientation, Mid-Program, and Capstone
