Program Philosophy

Undergraduate education ensures learning primarily through teaching and transmission. The Master of Engineering Management (MEM) program is for career professionals with work experience. It assumes andragogy, which postulates that the adult learner is a self-directed, autonomous, and internally motivated individual who draws on their own existing knowledge and past life & work experiences, actively interacts with peers at work and in class, and contemplates questions and controversies to discover facts, relationships, and new knowledge.  MEM courses subscribe to the same Program philosophy and are designed, developed, and delivered with the same expectations from individuals who pursue this degree.
