MEM - A Degree of Value

At the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, we firmly believe that every person and every interaction matter. Our faculty and staff will work with you from your first day of class to graduation to help ensure you have a successful journey as you earn your Master of Engineering Management degree.

MEM Online Info Sessions


One of the hallmarks of our program is our combination of core engineering courses, a wide variety of electives, and three courses from UNL’s top-ranked MBA program. This combination provides highly relevant content that you can apply immediately in your professional and personal life.

We also offer a 12-credit Graduate Certificate in Engineering Management, which can later be applied to earning our master’s degree. This certificate allows engineers to study and learn along with other professionals to gain the fundamental knowledge needed to be a successful leader.


Our flexible curriculum can be tailored to your career path by including topics that resonate in your work environment: business theories and practice, leadership, legal issues, quality management, and more.


We’re consistently noted nationally for our value – both in the overall cost of the program compared to other MEM programs and for the content we offer. We also work with our students to determine if they can be supported by their companies with tuition assistance. And we support military active duty, veterans, and retired personnel with a military tuition discount.


Our MEM puts you in the company of working professionals who are, like you, employed in engineering and technology industries, facing similar challenges, issues, and problems typical of that sector. You will find the discussions, interactions and cross pollination of ideas in our classes invaluable to your education, and difficult to find in MBA programs that allow students from any undergraduate background and any industry.
The key thing here is the diverse course offering that this program has. Beyond just engineering we’re able to learn about other groups within the company – in accounting, finance, purchasing, HR. Just having those skills can be valuable for career advancement.
