The Graduate Certificate in Engineering Management is designed for graduate engineers and scientists aspiring to advance into management careers within technological organizations. All course work for this degree is offered online.
The Systems and Industrial Engineering (SIE) Department at the University of Arizona was established in 1961 as the nation's first department of systems engineering. Since then, the SIE Department has achieved international prestige for its contributions to the inter-disciplinary design of large-scale complex systems involving people, technology, and information. With the introduction of a modern industrial engineering curriculum in 1972 and a reliability and quality engineering degree in 1987, the department offers a truly diverse and successful graduate program. Career opportunities for graduates of the Systems and Industrial Engineering programs are outstanding. Over the years, graduates from these programs have found employment in the nation's leading corporations, research institutes, and universities.
