CSUN Ranks Ninth in Engineering Management Degrees Awarded

(NORTHRIDGE, Calif., Sept. 27, 2007) — California State University, Northridge ranked ninth in the nation for the number of master’s degrees in engineering management it awarded in the academic year 2006-2007.

The ranking is based on data collected by the American Society of Engineering and was published in the 2007 edition of Profiles of Engineering & Engineering Technology Colleges.

According to the data, CSUN ranked ninth out of 63 recognized U.S. institutions in the number of master’s degrees in engineering management awarded. On average, a university awards about 29 engineering management degrees annually. CSUN doubled that average, awarding 56 in the past year.

"This is a program that is dear to my heart, and I, along with the department faculty, have invested several years building it," said Bonita Campbell, chair of the Department of Manufacturing Systems Engineering and Management.

Continuing growth of the management program is due to the relevance that the engineering industry actively seeks for its technical, professional employees, Campbell said.

"Students tend to be attracted to the program because they either wish to move into technical management positions, or have already done so and are seeking the types of knowledge and skills that will help them to execute their responsibilities," she said. "Because the students have a wide range of undergraduate engineering and related discipline backgrounds, they are able to gain valuable interdisciplinary experiential learning in working with class colleagues on course projects."

The College of Engineering and Computer Science at Northridge is home to several nationally recognized programs where students gain valuable hands-on experience working alongside faculty members and industry professionals on cutting-edge research. By blending practical application of the professions with a strong foundation in theory, the college has maintained a consistent following by alumni and friends from the industry who value the career-oriented education that students receive throughout their course of study at the university.
