Master of Science in Engineering Management

Welcome to the Enterprise and Logistics Engineering (ELE) website at FIU’s College of Engineering and Computing (CEC). The Enterprise and Logistics Engineering (ELE) unit houses graduate degrees in engineering management and logistics engineering. The ELE programs aim to provide students with the deep knowledge and insight to be successful managers and leaders in their industry. Two graduate degree programs offered within ELE include the Master of Science in Engineering Management (MSEM) and the Master of Science in Logistics Engineering (MSLE). The MSEM degree is offered in both in-person and online modalities.

The MSEM program is designed to offer a tailored degree for those engineers who would like to advance to managerial positions and wish to acquire the necessary knowledge and skills for success.

Students will not only be exposed to the theory but also learn from industry insiders and a curriculum geared toward addressing real-life industry problems. Program graduates will have the practical knowledge, insider expertise, and problem-solving skills, ready for job placement right after graduation.
