MELBOURNE, FLA. — Florida Tech’s master’s degree program in Engineering Management ranked 11th in the country for 2005-2006 in terms of number of degrees
awarded, according to the American Society of Engineering Education.
This is ahead of similar programs offered by MIT and Dartmouth. Florida Tech graduated 55, versus 43 by MIT and 37 by Dartmouth.
Program Head Muzaffar Shaikh, Ph.D., estimates the number of degrees awarded will be even higher in 2007-2008. Thirteen will take home the degree from
Florida Tech this May and another 60 are set to earn it by the end of summer.
In recent years engineering management (EM) programs have grown significantly. At Florida Tech, nearly 70 percent of engineering management students are
employees from the local high-tech industry, though recently, a great many international students have started the program. Florida Tech’s EM curriculum
focuses on teaching engineers and scientists practical cost-reduction and defect-prevention tools and techniques without sacrificing technical product
