Engineering management reflects a blend of technical and business management skills applied to technology-oriented companies. The program here at the International Technological University (ITU) has been designed to prepare engineers, technical specialists and business professionals to lead projects and programs and to take leadership positions in such technology-oriented businesses.
Training in Engineering Management includes instruction in engineering and technology subjects, along with a foundation in principles of business management. The degree has sometimes been referred to as a “technical MBA” and puts a significant emphasis on the development of leadership skills, team-building, collaboration, technology assessment, innovation and entrepreneurship, financial analysis, quantitative methods, market research, and effective business communication.
Furthermore, given our existence in the heart of Silicon Valley, we also offer students the opportunity to study and learn about fast-developing emerging markets such as the Internet of Things (IoT), medical devices, digital health technology, cloud computing, and other areas.
