Engineering Management Program
The Engineering Management Program at Portland State University provides students, primarily practicing engineers and scientists but also those interested in continued research, the opportunity for a management education with technical focus and professional skill development to support advancement into technical management positions. Since its inception 10 years ago, EMP had graduated approximately 100 alumni with Master's in Engineering Management (and several Ph.D.). EMP has implemented a process of continuing improvement fielding, amongst other projects, a student-survey based assessment in the summer of 1995. The summary of the information revealed several areas worthy of closer inspection for improvement, among those the need for increased resources of both faculty and facilitates, and the inclusion of "real-world' experiences into the program. At the same time, concern rose over the large percentage of inactive students. In 1995, the program was composed of approximately 88 active students versus 52 inactive students.
