Career Advancement
On Your Time


Advancing your career does not mean stopping dead in your tracks. Balancing your duties to loved ones, work and things you enjoy doing is important. With an online engineering management degree, you can bolster  your career.

If you have already started an engineering career, there are several ways to advance yourself. Slow movements through incremental promotions or navigating company politics to get a promotion can be time consuming—and not very reliable. You can continue to work hard while also getting ahead with a Master’s Degree in Engineer Management (MEM) online. 

WHY AN ADVANCED ENGINEER MANAGEMENT DEGREE? 

You know the mechanics of engineering. You have experience. However, you haven’t been able to engineer more career development. Although you can work your way forward step-by-step, there can be glass ceilings and slow-moving channels to get through. A master’s degree in management is not only a way to advance more quickly. It is an exceptional way to prepare you and your team for success. Be a better manager by understanding managerial duties, skills and strategies. Not only will you get ahead of the competition, but you will be a better leader for your staff. 

At LETU, our faith-based education adds an extra element of care and service. Learn how to engage with your work in a value-based, compassion-driven way. We teach the hard skills to advance and the value-based leadership skills to improve the quality of your workplace.

CREATING A SUNROOF FROM A GLASS CEILING

Experience in engineering does not automatically provide the skills or knowledge for people management. Some jobs simply require more education, which is why earning your masters can empower you with the advanced knowledge you need. 

In addition to increasing your competitiveness, a master’s degree increases the income of engineering managers. It can also increase job opportunities, giving you more freedom of movement. 

 

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET AN ONLINE MASTER’S DEGREE IN ENGINEERING MANAGEMENT?

An online MEM takes 30 credit-hours or 10 classes: 

  • Entrepreneurial Leadership

  • Managerial Accounting

  • Managerial Finance

  • Program Management

  • Quality and Operations Management

  • System Safety and Risk Analysis

  • Integrated Logistics

  • Project Management

  • Systems Analysis

  • Engineering Management Design

Each one of these courses will add to your skillset. So, if you are already management-tracked, your job performance will increase with every semester. Apply your new knowledge immediately. 

If you are not yet in line for a shift into promotion, starting a master’s can help show dedication to your employer. 

An online degree is easy to fit into your schedule. You can even use your lunch hour to study or watch courses online. (That may even look good to your manager!)
