The Master of Project Management (MPM) program is designed to prepare technically qualified individuals for responsible management roles in the construction and operation of major engineering projects.

About

The Master of Project Management (MPM) program, which leads to an M.S. degree from the McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Science, is designed to prepare technically qualified individuals for responsible management roles in the construction, operation, and management of major civil and environmental engineering projects. Unlike a traditional engineering graduate program, the MPM program offers the practical business perspective needed by project managers. In contrast to traditional MBA programs, the MPM program emphasizes planning and design skills that are specifically required in project-based organizations and encourages students to build on their technical backgrounds and experience.

The MPM program is based on a multidisciplinary approach to combine the essential components of civil engineering design with the functional concepts of business management and behavioral science to develop a versatile and technically oriented individual capable of directing complex civil engineering projects.
