The Master of Science in Engineering Management program is designed to provide practicing engineers and specialists in related fields with the requisite skills to advance to management positions and assess and manage new and existing technologies specific to a company’s needs.  Successful students earn a Master of Science degree through the completion of 30 credits of course work culminating in a capstone management project.

Admission Requirements


Applicants for admission should hold a baccalaureate degree in Engineering or a related field in science from an accredited institution.  They must also have an average grade of B or better in their undergraduate work or a satisfactory score on the Graduate Record Examination.  The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) is required of applicants who completed their bachelor’s degree in a country where English is not the official and spoken language.  TOEFL scores are valid for two years from the test date.  Criteria that are evaluated in the admissions process include undergraduate and/or previous graduate work and a professional resume, and/or a summary of accomplishments.  The engineering graduate admissions committee will evaluate prospective students.

English Proficiency Requirement is for International Students

In addition, newly admitted international students are required to take an English placement exam during orientation. The exam consists of a short writing task on a topic of general interest and an oral interview. Results are reviewed by the Hofstra English Language Program (ELP) faculty. Students who place into an ESL class must take either ESL 234 (2.0 s.h.) or 235 (2.0 s.h.) after advisement.  All international students who are placed in ESL 234 or  235 (2.0 s.h.) must pass the course during the first semester in which they begin the Engineering Management program and must receive a grade of P (Pass) in the course. ESL  234 and 235 carry no degree credit. A fee equivalent to 2.0 s.h. is charged for these courses. A grade of P (pass) is required, or the course must be repeated the following semester. The same fee equivalent will be charged for the repeated course.
