In Information Engineering Management program from The University of Alabama at Birmingham, we help technology professionals turn their technology expertise into leadership skills, so they grow in their company, find new opportunities in other companies, or start something of their own.


Why IEM?

As a technology professional, you have likely seen and felt the unique challenges tech experts encounter as we try to grow into leadership. 

  • Our tech skills are in high demand, so we are often given more tech work and less leadership experience.
  • We are often left out of the decision-making where management, marketing, finance, and production come together to deliver the product. 

Technology professionals are the new blue-collar. 

So how do you breakthrough to become more than just an engineer, developer, or project manager? 

Learn how to translate your technical skills into the language of the company leadership. This is not just about learning new skills and walking away from what you know; it is about translation – showing how what you do adds value to the company’s bottom line.

Information Engineering Management program from The University of Alabama at Birmingham is a 5-semester (20 months) online engineering management program designed for working professionals. Classes meet in the evenings, are recorded in case you have to miss, and are interactive with others so that you grow your professional network – a key ingredient to professional growth.
