Engineering Management

A Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) is the pinnacle of success in academia. This degree highlights a student’s dedication and desire towards a particular field, complete with significant research that offers new findings on a topic.

What is a PhD in Engineering Management? Students who complete a PhD in Engineering Management will have a degree that may equip them with the knowledge and best practices of engineering science and business management. Participants in this program generally learn how to keep an organization running efficiently while delivering on product development and research. Students can learn how to manage projects and personnel, handle crises, and stay abreast of environmental and technological standards. There are many areas to focus on, such as industrial engineering, product development and manufacturing construction.

With a PhD in Engineering Management, students can gain important skills such as crisis management and project management. With these skills, individuals will be able to effectively lead a team of engineers on a project, which also shows their communication skills. In terms of business, they may be able to budget projects.

Although the cost for a PhD in Engineering Management varies by institution, it generally takes about three to six years to complete. Each student should research the program and school to ensure both are the right fit for his or her goals.

A PhD in Engineering Management can open many doors for an individual. An obvious choice is to teach at a university, but there are also options to become a project lead within an engineering company or to work on developing new products that solve engineering problems. Most jobs are office related rather than fieldwork. Instead of working on individual projects, these managers work with and oversee a team of fellow engineers and designers.

A PhD may provide more options for you. Available around the world, there are also programs online for more flexibility. To find the right school, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
