The program is designed to impart essential knowledge for today’s and tomorrow’s technology-driven world.

“Engineering Management is the art and science of planning, organizing, allocating resources, and directing and controlling activities which have a technological component. Engineering managers are distinguished from other managers by the fact that they posses both an ability to apply engineering principles and a skill in organizing and directing technical projects and people in technical jobs.” (ASEM)
