USC Viterbi's Master of Science in Engineering Management (MSEMT) program has joined the Master of Engineering Management Programs Consortium (MEMPC), a select group of forward-thinking professional graduate engineering management programs from Cornell, Dartmouth, Duke, MIT, Northwestern, and Stanford.
The MEMPC was chartered in 2006 to raise awareness of the Master of Engineering Management (M.E.M.) degree and the skills developed through the combination of engineering and management course work to prepare technology managers. The MEMPC member institutions share ideas, expertise, new curricula ideas, and best practices.
"We are very pleased to be joining the MEMPC and look forward to a long and mutually beneficial association. We are eager to contribute to the advancement of this area of engineering education and also to learn from our partners in the MEMPC," says Geza Bottlik, MSEMT Program Director at the University of Southern California.
"USC is welcomed by the six MEMPC members as a leading program in the field," says Robert Graves, director of the Master of Engineering Management Program at Dartmouth's Thayer School of Engineering. "The MSEMT program experience with distance learning brings even more strength to the MEMPC as we collectively work to accomplish our goals and promote the profession."
