Engineering management -- Study and teaching (Higher), Data envelopment analysis -- Case studies, Operations research
Online education grows in popularity in the United States making education available to those who may not be able to attend class in person. Graduate studies in engineering is one path that adopted this mode of content delivery. This study offers a look at graduate engineering management programs taught online specifically and attempts to identify ‘best practices’. Using a method of Optimization Modeling, Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) examines the interdependencies and values of criteria for success. It compares their efficiencies based on: faculty experience teaching online, full-time faculty, availability of technology support, with outcomes of graduation rates, numbers of graduates.
