Master of Engineering Management
On-Campus and Fully Online
MEM (coursework-only Master’s degree) – 30 hours
Distance courses are delineated by the section number beginning with the letter D, such as INSY 6600-D01.
This program has four options. There is no “general” option.
- Master of Engineering Management - Manufacturing Option
- Master of Engineering Management - Occupational Safety and Ergonomics Option
- Master of Engineering Management - Product Innovation Option
- Master of Engineering Management - Systems Option
Required Core Classes
There are five required courses common to all the options (core courses):
- INSY 6600 (Prerequisite Information) – Engineering-Economic Systems (Offered Spring semester on campus and online; offered only online in Summer)
- INSY 7970 – Special Topics (Usually Summer online and Fall semester) OR INSY 6250 – Project Management (Offered Spring semester on campus and online; offered only online in Summer)
- INSY 6800 – Lean Systems (Fall and Spring semesters only)
- INSY 7080 – Human Factors Engineering (Offered every other Fall semester on campus and online; offered only online in Summer)
- INSY 7760 – Engineering & Technology Management (Fall semester only; BUSI 7140 accepted prior to Fall 2021)
Required Courses by Option
There are two option-specific required courses in all the options in addition to the five core classes.
MEM-Occupational Safety and Ergonomics Option
- INSY 6330 – Six Sigma (Every Fall)
- INSY 6840 – Control of the Manufacturing Floor and Processes (Every other Fall)
MEM-Production Innovation Option
- INSY 6010 – Safety Engineering I (Offered every other fall on campus and online; offered only online in Summer)
- INSY 7060 – Ergonomics I (Offered every other fall on campus and online; offered only online in Summer)
- INSY 7730 – Product Design, Development and Test (Offered every Fall)
- INSY 7740 – Product Launch, Manufacturing and Delivery (Offered every Spring)
- INSY 7720 – Systems Engineering I (Offered every Fall)
- INSY 7710 – Life Cycle Engineering (Offered every Spring)
There are three additional required INSY or INSY-related Electives for each option. An INSY Elective is any 3-hour graduate course with INSY pre-fix. An INSY-related Elective may have an INSY prefix or other prefix, such as SCMN 6720. Students can take all of their courses as INSY courses and are recommended to do so if they do not have an undergraduate degree in Industrial and Systems Engineering. STAT 7000 may not be counted for this degree.
Advance approval from the Graduate Program Advisor is required to enroll in the following courses:
- INSY 7940 ISE Problems
- INSY 7980 ISE Project
All graduate level courses are numbered 6000 and above, e.g. INSY 6600, INSY 7300, or INSY 8250. There is no substantive difference in the level 6xxx and level 7xxx courses. The courses numbered 8xxx are usually only taken by PhD students; individual instructors can make exceptions. Distance courses are delineated by the section number beginning with the letter D, such as INSY 6600-D01. All graduate level courses are 3-semester hours unless otherwise specified.

All of our required courses are offered at least once per year; most elective courses are offered less frequently. Generally around five elective courses or more are offered each semester, including Summer.
The courses in our program can be taken in any order and prerequisites are generally not enforced at the Graduate level. Taking three courses (9 hours) is considered full-time for a Graduate student. Most online students take 1-2 courses per semester. Students have 6 years to complete the degree.
