The Engineering Management Program at Catholic University has a proud 40-year history of successfully educating military, government and industry professionals in the art and science of leading and managing people in technical organizations.

Program's Intent. The Catholic University of America Engineering Management Program endeavors to provide excellence in engineering management education for graduate students to enhance their careers and to accelerate their learning as they leverage new engineering and technological advances while leading, managing, and serving a diverse workforce within their respective organizations. 

Our courses are taught by seasoned professionals who have the education and experience to provide students with an understanding of engineering management practices and the underlining theory.

Engineering Management Program has three Degree tracks (Master of Science degree) and four Certificate options (Certificate in Engineering Management) available based on student needs.

Effective July 2019 for US Navy Officers (non-Nuclear Trained), the Engineering Management Program may use 6 transfer credits based on specified Navy education, training, and experience. 
May result in eligible student’s need to take only 8 courses (3 credits each) to complete the 10 course/30 credit hour MS degree program. 

For US Navy Nuclear Trained Officers and other qualified individuals, the Engineering Management Program may use 12 transfer credits based the completion of the Nuclear Power Program or the Bettis Reactor Engineering School. May result in eligible student’s need to take only 6 courses (3 credits each) to complete the 10 course/30 credit hour MS degree program.
