MEM is an independent academic program that belongs to both the School of Engineering and the School of Business. The students majoring in MEM graduate with a Bachelor of Science degree conferred by both the School of Engineering and the School of Business.


MEM students graduate with a BS degree conferred by both the School of Engineering and the School of Business. At graduation you would be part of an elite cohort with two tassels hanging from your mortarboard!

The UConn MEM program is accredited in both engineering management and manufacturing engineering by ABET—the same organization that accredits all engineering programs at UConn and other national peer institutions.

MEM graduates have immense flexibility to work as practicing engineers or to focus more on the business side. Companies find MEM graduates to be well-rounded engineers that see the “big picture” due to their unique curriculum. Our graduates are very successful in getting coveted internships and “Leadership Development Program” positions at major companies that introduce them to multiple facets of the business, preparing them for a “fast track” to promotion. Due to this, MEM graduates tend to secure higher starting salaries than their peers who pursue other engineering and business majors.

You don’t have to choose between an engineering degree and a business degree—MEM offers the best of both! Given the level of competition in seeking employment, employers look to hire people who are educationally well-suited for their fields. MEM provides the tools you will need to be competitive.

We are proud to say that for the last decade 100% of our graduating seniors have been employed shortly after graduation.
