Online Engineering Management Degrees and Careers


Engineering is a diverse field and all aspects of it require managers to direct, plan, and co-ordinate activities, including making sure processes are followed, budgets are not exceeded, goals are met, and personnel issues are dealt with. Engineering managers need to combine management skills with their knowledge of engineering, and many continue to carry out some engineering work such as research.

Education and Career Opportunities in Engineering Management

Engineering management jobs are usually held by people who hold a minimum of a bachelor's degree in an engineering speciality and have worked in engineering for several years. Engineering management degree programs include an MBA for non-technical roles or an MEM--master's degree in engineering management--for technical jobs. Your employer may help you cover the costs of a degree in engineering management.

Employment of engineering managers is projected to grow at about 8 percent in the decade 2008 to 2018--about the same as for all occupations. Opportunities for employment are expected to be best in faster growing engineering fields such as biomedical and environmental engineering.

According to The Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2009, engineering managers earned median annual wages of $117,000. The highest salaries were earned by managers working in spectator sports.

To advance into an engineering management position, you should focus on gaining valuable experience in an engineering role and continuing your education through a higher management degree or an engineering management degree.
