The engineering industry can cover everything from city planning to software engineering and from building the smallest and largest structures. It is the diverse nature of the industry that draws so many intelligent minds into the field. Because each section of engineering is so vastly different, there are a variety of resources to suit each specialized division of the industry.
Ohio University’s online Master of Engineering Management prepares engineering leaders from any of the diverse engineering disciplines listed below, as well as from other technical degree backgrounds. This application-focused degree prepares engineers to apply leadership and management capabilities to lead technical teams from a variety of different backgrounds. For more information, please fill out the form on the right to learn more.
Also, please see below for additional resources several diverse disciplines within the vast field of engineering:
Aerospace engineering deals mostly with airborne structures and vehicles, such as airplanes and spacecrafts. Aerospace is the general term for the industry, while aeronautical deals specifically with crafts that stay within the Earth’s atmosphere and astronautical deals with crafts that fly outside of the Earth’s atmosphere.
