The Catholic University of America

Welcome to the Engineering Management Program at CUA


As the inaugural Associate Dean for External Affairs within the School of Engineering, my duties also include that as leader of the Engineering Management Program.

It was my privilege to graduate from The Catholic University of America Engineering Management Program and to serve in the US Navy as a nuclear trained submarine officer, completing service as a Vice Admiral. The Engineering Management Program helped to prepare me for leadership duties in the US Navy, and for leadership roles as the Associate Deputy Secretary of Energy and later in Academia.

The Engineering Management Program at Catholic University has a proud 30-year history of successfully educating military, government and industry professionals in the art and science of leading and managing people in technical organizations.

Our intent is to enhance the career success for Engineering Management Program students. To that end, our courses are taught by seasoned professionals who have the education and experience to provide students with an understanding of engineering management practices and the underlining theory.

Engineering Management Program has three Degree tracks (Master of Science degree) and four Certificate options (Certificate in Engineering Management) which are available based on student needs.

We look forward to supporting your education and continued career success.
