We specialize in teaching leadership and management skills for engineers so they can take their careers to the next level.
- Project Management
We teach students how to see the bigger picture, allowing them to allocate, manage and influence resources effectively to achieve project goals. This is a crucial skill to learn, especially for working professionals. Earn PMI credits simply by passing the course.
Our curriculum helps students develop the refined communication skills necessary to bridge communication gaps between engineers and non-engineers.
Students learn to connect the internal workings of technology development to economic outcomes and long-term goals so they can make decisions that move businesses into the future.
Engage With Faculty and Peers
From the boardroom to the lab to the battlefield, our engineering management Faculty bring real-world experience to the classroom. Drawn from the award-winning faculty of the George R. Brown School of Engineering and the Rice Center for Engineering Leadership (RCEL), the Master of Engineering Management & Leadership Faculty understand both the technical and human sides of engineering management and are ready to share this understanding with their students.

STRUCTURED BY YOU
Self-Paced Lectures and Live Weekly Sessions
Work at Your Own Pace
To earn the MEML@Rice degree, students must complete at least 30 credit hours, which can be completed 100% online. If you are located in Houston, you can also take up to three courses on-campus.
There are due dates for all graded work, and regularly scheduled live sessions with faculty and fellow students are an integral part of each course. Working at your own pace often conforms to many part-time students’ lives, such as students who manage their classwork on top of their budding engineering careers.
Attend Additional Live Sessions
Weekly live sessions are optional and occur during the teacher’s office hours. These sessions provide you with the opportunity to connect with other students and faculty after reviewing the weekly lecture and classroom assignments.
Students can also take advantage of free online tutoring. This is a service that’s provided free of charge by the university, so students who need extra help can get the support they need.
