College of Engineering and its Offerings

Through its College of Engineering, Florida Institute of Technology offers a Master of Science (M.S.) in Engineering Management degree program for professionals in technological fields who seek to develop leadership skills to effectively lead engineering teams. As a top engineering university, Florida Tech is equipped with the advanced, modern resources of the F.W. Olin Engineering Complex. Its resources are made available to all engineering students, assisting them in their studies as well as their research.

M.S. in Engineering Management Degree Program

With over 30 years of experience of offering the engineering management program, Florida Tech has constructed a master's degree program that attracts the majority of its students from within the industry. Florida Tech's master's in engineering management degree program is designed for engineers who seek to update their technological skills, and learn how to create dynamic teams. The engineering management program places a strong focus on skills best practiced in technical project management -- transforming today's graduate students into tomorrow's industry leaders.

The engineering management program is interdisciplinary, meaning students who are already working in an engineering field will learn new skills and techniques that can be applied to what they already know and can be put to work in their current organizations. In addition, flexibility in course offerings and evening classes both make it very convenient for working professionals to attend.

Program Requirements

Graduate students in the Master of Science (M.S.) in Engineering Management degree program each complete a minimum of 30 semester hours. These include 15 semester hours of core courses in "Quality Engineering," "Project Engineering," "Topics in Engineering Operations and Logistics," "Technology Commercialization Strategies," and "Strategic Situation Analysis Using Game Theory."

Each student may choose between a thesis and nonthesis track. Nonthesis students complete 5 elective courses while thesis students complete 3 elective courses and 6 semester-hours of thesis research.

Students submit plans for their programs of study, which are approved by their advisers and department heads prior to beginning the program.

Admission Requirements

Successful candidates to the M.S. in Engineering Management degree program have bachelor's degrees either from ABET-accredited engineering programs or in mathematics, computer science, or the physical sciences. An applicant with a grade point average below 3.0 should submit 2 letters of recommendation, GRE test results, a resume, and a statement of objectives. Non-native English speakers must also have received TOEFL scores of 550 or above.

A Top Technology Institute

Florida Tech was originally established in 1958 to support the work of technicians, engineers, and scientists working for NASA's Kennedy Space Center. More than 50 years later, the university has grown into one of the nation's top recognized technological institutes, ranked as a Tier 1 Best National University by "U.S. News and World Report." Other accolades include being recognized by "Forbes" as one of America's top colleges, and being ranked highly by the "Princeton Review."

Several Florida Tech faculty members have received NSF Career Awards, and 90 are principle investigators in the institute's well-funded projects. Government, private organizations, and industry currently finance $94 million in sponsored research projects.

College of Engineering

The College of Engineering at Florida Institute of Technology is consistently ranked among the nation's top technological institutions by "Fisk Guide to Colleges." The college includes 10 departments, spanning subjects such as biomedical engineering, chemical engineering, civil engineering, computer sciences, construction management, computing, electrical and computer engineering, engineering systems, marine and environmental systems, and mechanical and aerospace engineering.

Its 70 faculty members have attracted research grants from both public and private sources that have supported projects conducted through the school's research institutes, research centers, and major laboratories. These include the Harris Center for Science and Engineering, which houses the nationally recognized Harris Institute for Assured Information.

A Leader in Engineering Research

Florida Institute of Technology is located in Melbourne, Florida, an hour away from Kennedy Space Center. As a hub of aerospace and innovative technologies, the area is home to large high-tech companies including Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Harris Corporation, Northrop Grumman, United Space Alliance and, of course, NASA. Students enjoy internships and are often recruited by these and other high-tech companies.

Florida Tech boasts 34 research institutes and centers in addition to major laboratories, providing an engineering management graduate student with all the resources needed to conduct his or her own research.

The mission of the Institute for Energy Systems is to provide an intellectually stimulating environment for faculty members and students to conduct funded research in areas of national need, such as increasing domestic energy supplies, developing a comprehensive delivery system, and sustaining the nation's health and environment.

The mission of the College of Engineering Center for Space Commercialization is to identify, promote, and support the use of space to provide goods or services of commercial value, and to support U.S. aerospace industries and NASA toward a profitable commercialization of space. The center seeks to foster multidisciplinary collaboration among researchers from the highly diversified scientific, engineering, and business communities, including universities, businesses, and government entities.

This Dynamic Systems and Controls Laboratory supports a variety of research activities in dynamic systems for mechanical and aerospace applications. Among these is the real-time monitoring and control of the flexible dynamics in launch vehicles including design, characterization, and system integration of distributed actuators, such as cold gas thrusters.

Department of Extended Studies Off-Campus Locations

Offering master's degree and certificate programs that combine real-world experience with classroom instruction, the Department of Extended Studies conducts classes in a traditional manner with admission and graduation standards the same as those required on campus. During one year, more than 1,500 students may be enrolled in one of nearly 40 degree programs offered at off-campus locations, including the Master's in Engineering Management.

The curriculum is designed so that students will study along with their peers, who bring international perspectives, professional expertise, and remarkable energy to the classroom. Faculty members and students continue to build on Florida Tech's success as a university that values the pursuit of excellence in leadership and entrepreneurship at all levels.
