  1. Technical: an understanding of and proficiency in engineering and science.
  2. Human: the ability to build a collaborative effort within a group.
  3. Conceptual: the ability to apply analytical thought to the management process and to the enterprise as a total system.

The EMGT program offers these emphasis areas:

  • Consulting engineering services.
  • Manufacturing/process engineering.
  • Technology management.

Courses are taught on weekday evenings or Saturdays on the KU Edwards Campus by Graduate Faculty members of the School of Engineering. Most courses are available by distance education.
