What is a Master of Engineering Management certificate?

We offer a group of certificates to strengthen your knowledge and skills in a specialized area. Each certificate is more focused than a full degree, which means you’ll graduate with more than a degree — you’ll graduate with in-demand expertise.

What makes the OHIO Master of Engineering Management certificates unique is that the credit you earn through each one can be applied toward your full MEM degree. Upon completion, these certificates will appear with earned graduate credit on your transcript from an accredited institution, and not just on a list of continuing education classes.

You can begin each certificate in any semester, and the minimum program length varies between two and three semesters.* The maximum time allowed for the completion of a certificate is three calendar years, or nine consecutive semesters.

*The certified Lean Six Sigma certificate may take longer to complete because of the prerequisite course requirements.

Admission Requirements

If you’re a prospective student and would like to be considered for one of our certificate programs, you must apply for admission to each MEM certificate program of interest. If you’re already admitted to the MEM program, you will benefit from an abbreviated admissions process.

The Certified Lean-Six Sigma, Engineering Analytics, and Six Sigma Black Belt certificates have the same admission requirements as the Master of Engineering Management (MEM) program.

The Engineering Management and Engineering Leadership certificate requirements are the same as the MEM program, except that the requirements for 8 semester hours of calculus and post-calculus math are waived. A student who performs successfully in one or both of these certificates demonstrates the ability to perform well in graduate studies and may be in a stronger position to fulfill the mathematics requirements for the MEM degree or the other certificates.
