The objective of the Engineering and Management Systems program is to integrate engineering and computer science technologies with the core components of an MBA. Students become architects of a multi-disciplined technical/management degree that provides the skills necessary to quickly develop products and move them toward commercialization.


Technology-driven businesses need leaders with the technical knowledge to drive innovation, and the business expertise to manage for success. The Clarkson M.S. in Engineering and Management Systems program integrates engineering and information systems coursework with the core components of an MBA to help you master the full range of skills you’ll need to advance into engineering management roles. In our applied learning environment, you’ll learn how to put your knowledge to work to make an immediate and long term impact in fields that are growing in our region and beyond.

The engineering and computer science professions continue to require the understanding and application of broadening technologies that complement each other in their product, system, or service application. Course offerings from all three disciplines (Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Computer Science) may be required to provide a student with their desired technical growth or parallel the direction of their industrial interests. Technical career growth may be additionally enhanced by supplementing strong technical fundamentals with management disciplines such as finance, marketing, operations, or other related business skills. The Master of Science in Engineering and Management Systems provides a balanced degree program of engineering and computer science complemented by courses from the Clarkson University School of Business or The Business of Energy Program.
