The MIT Master's Program in Engineering and Management
Jointly offered by the MIT School of Engineering and the MIT Sloan School of Management, SDM is at the forefront of graduate education at MIT.
The centerpiece of SDM's portfolio is its rigorous 13- to 24-month master's program in engineering and management. SDM also offers a one-year graduate certificate program in systems and product development. The SDM curriculum for both is built on a foundation of core courses in system architecture, systems engineering, and system and project management — integrated with management courses tailored to students with significant industry experience and solid technical backgrounds. Both offerings can be taken primarily at a distance.
SDM students are among the best and brightest of their generation, carefully selected for the ability to think holistically and to succeed in SDM's unique, demanding, interdisciplinary curriculum. Upon graduation, many SDM alumni capitalize on their state-of-the-art skills in systems thinking and innovation to take on leadership roles in a wide range of organizations and domains.
All SDMs participate in a vibrant lifelong learning community where students, alumni, faculty, and industry partners share knowledge, work to improve the SDM program, and support each other in creating new strategies for success.
