EEE Masters Degree
As a licensed Professional Engineer, or PE, you can expect many more benefits when compared to other engineers; most employers offer higher salaries and greater opportunities for advancement to PE's. Only PE's can consult in private practice, and seal company documents to be sent to the government. PEs also have more credibility as expert witnesses in court than most engineers.
Steps in obtaining a PE license:
During your senior year you should take the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam, which is required prior to sitting for the Professional Engineers (PE) Exam. Some requirements vary by state.
The National Council of Examiners Administers Both Exams for Engineering and Surveying
Engineering students at Michigan Tech are encouraged to take and pass the FE examination during their last semester in college, or the first year after graduation. There will never be a time when you are better prepared to pass it than near graduation.
The examination is offered in April and October each year. Students must visit http://ncees.org/exams/ to register for the exam and pay the $155.00 fee. The registration deadline is approximately two months before the test.
FE exam Waiver
The FE Exam may be waived for those who have earned a BS in engineering and a PhD in engineering. See the NCEES web site for details.

As a technology professional, you have likely seen and felt the unique challenges tech experts encounter as we try to grow into leadership.
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.
In IEM, 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. Your undergraduate degree need not be from engineering – we will focus more on your technology experience as entrance requirements.
IEM 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.
Develop skills in leadership and communication while rounding out those other high-demand skills such as project management, systems engineering, data analytics and management, corporate finance, and entrepreneurial thinking.
Unlike other executive programs charging $50,000 to $100,000, IEM can be completed for around $30,000.
Our curriculum is designed with one goal in mind: to help you gain the knowledge and skills you need to advance your work. Our classes are designed with flexibility, so you can complete the degree while juggling career and family.
We work with current, sitting CEOs at major corporations to develop our course content around what they, as hiring professionals, want to see in their potential employees. We didn't just guess at what was relevant, we asked the people who are the reason most professionals look to get a degree in the first place exactly what was needed, then built classes to teach those things. We regularly meet with these CEOs to make sure what we are teaching stays current, and many globally based CEOs from multiple countries serve on our advisory board to make sure that the degree you earn from UAB is one that will pay you back. We have major corporations tell us that if they see a UAB Engineering Management Masters Degree on a resume submission, they pay attention.
Each of our faculty members are real world industry leaders. Our faculty has worked in the same environments and with the same bureaucracy and kinds of people that you deal with at work. We know how to help you move forward, because we have walked these same paths as you.
Explore the site to learn about our curriculum, faculty, and our alumni success stories. If you have any questions, contact us – we’re happy to answer your questions and hope to see you studying with us soon.

Best Engineering Jobs
The occupations on the US News and World Report's 2022 Best Engineering Jobs list are diverse and offer good salaries.
NACE's Salary Projections
Engineering Majors Once Again Among Those Most in Demand: This year, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, and computer engineering are interspersed throughout the list.
Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Outlook Handbook
"Employment in architecture and engineering occupations is projected to grow 6 percent from 2020 to 2030. Employment is projected to grow about as fast as the average for all occupations, although growth will vary by specialty; overall job opportunities for engineers are expected to be good. A bachelor's degree in engineering is required for most entry-level jobs, but some research positions may require a graduate degree. Starting salaries are among the highest of all college graduates."
PayScale College Salary Report
"It's no surprise that STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) majors are the top college majors by salary, but that doesn't mean that we discourage students from studying majors in the humanities, social sciences, education or arts. In fact, some of those majors lead to high-paying careers as well—it just often takes a longer time for those graduates to reach their prime earning potential."
