Engineering graduates interested in enhancing their education often turn to the MBA. An increasingly popular alternate is the Master of Science in Engineering Management, designed by and for engineers - it can provide both relevant and critical management skills essential for successful technology careers. In this webinar, Dr Maxwell will discuss the merits of a Master of Science in Engineering Management, and provide specific examples to explain how graduate engineers can benefit from a better understanding of how people make technology-related decisions (such as to invest in, or adopt, a new technology). Dr. Maxwell will highlight his talk with examples from the new courses in innovation and engineering management that make up the certificate and Master's programs recently launched in both online and hybrid formats by Temple University's College of Engineering, in conjunction with the Fox School of Business.
