The MEMPC released the following news yesterday:
USC Joins Master of Engineering Management Programs Consortium
“The Master of Science in Engineering Management (MSEMT) program at the University of Southern California has joined the Master of Engineering Management Programs Consortium (MEMPC), a select group of forward-thinking professional graduate engineering management programs from Cornell, Dartmouth, Duke, MIT, Northwestern, and Stanford.
The MEMPC was chartered in 2006 to raise awareness of the Master of Engineering Management (M.E.M.) degree and the skills developed through the combination of engineering and management course work to prepare technology managers. The MEMPC member institutions share ideas, expertise, new curricula ideas, and best practices.
“We are very pleased to be joining the MEMPC and look forward to a long and mutually beneficial association. We are eager to contribute to the advancement of this area of engineering education and also to learn from our partners in the MEMPC,” says Geza Bottlik, MSEMT Program Director at the University of Southern California.
“USC is welcomed by the six MEMPC members as a leading program in the field,” says Robert Graves, director of the Master of Engineering Management Program at Dartmouth’s Thayer School of Engineering. “The MSEMT program experience with distance learning brings even more strength to the MEMPC as we collectively work to accomplish our goals and promote the profession.”
About the Master of Science in Engineering Management Program at the USC Viterbi School of Engineering
The Master of Science in Engineering Management Program at the USC Viterbi School of Engineering is a two year program for students with engineering or related bachelor degrees. It prepares graduates and working engineers to become managers in today’s technologically oriented environment. The program is housed in the Daniel J. Epstein Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering.
Engineering studies began at the University of Southern California in 1905. Nearly a century later, the Viterbi School of Engineering received a naming gift in 2004 from alumnus Andrew J. Viterbi, inventor of the Viterbi algorithm now key to cell phone technology and numerous data applications. Today the school is consistently ranked among the top graduate programs in the world, enrolling 4,200 graduate students as well as more than 2,100 undergraduates. Its Distance Education Network (DEN@Viterbi) was recently ranked #1 Online Graduate Engineering Program by the U.S. News and World Report, 2013 Edition.”
