Missouri S&T’s online master’s degree program in engineering management is among the top 10 nationwide, according to U.S. News & World Report’s 2023 Best Online Master’s in Engineering Program rankings, released today (Tuesday, Jan. 24).
The program ranks sixth in the nation in the engineering management category and eighth in the nation in the industrial engineering category.
Missouri S&T’s engineering management program was the nation’s first, established in 1979.
