The UC Berkeley's Masters in Engineering and Project Management (E&PM) degree program prepares professionals to become leaders in managing projects and companies in Architecture-Engineering-Construction (AEC), as well as other industries. The program places emphasis on teaching and researching new management technologies, developments, techniques, and such concepts as Lean Construction, Cost and Schedule Forensics, and Sustainability Engineering. The Program emphasizes the interrelationships of all project life-cycle components: planning, design, manufacturing, construction, operation, maintenance, and re-purposing/decommissioning. The program is strongly interlinked with industry as the campus is located in the San Francisco Bay Area—the center of major local, national, and international project management and construction activity. Therefore, class projects and research leverage the ability to go observe as well as study specific local and international projects. During both semesters of your first year of study you are required to attend weekly E&PM seminars as they provide a forum for learning about what is happening in the profession and in academic research. You will also get an opportunity to learn from industry practitioners who are invited to present guest lectures describing industry challenges and solutions.

Students can flexibly tailor the 9-month long MS program of study to suit their individual interests by electing upper-division undergraduate and graduate courses in engineering department or elsewhere but only with the approval of your major field adviser. By choosing MS degree electives judiciously, you can also earn a graduate certificate while meeting the 24 unit degree requirement. You can chose to do a either a thesis or Comprehensive Examination. Answers in the exam should reflect a comprehensive understanding of the field of engineering and project management, command of course material, and ability to link the material presented in different courses. Graduates of this program find a wide range of employment opportunities in private industry as well as in the public sector, both domestically and internationally.
