Having worked as an engineer for 10 years and with a B.S. degree in electrical engineering, I already possessed the technical skills I needed. I made the decision to further my education because I wanted to improve those skill sets that make managers effective as I progress along my career path. The MEM program was exactly what I was looking for: convenient, affordable, and from a nationally ranked university. The fact that I also work at Rowan as the University Engineer made the decision even easier. The online coursework is not only an effective learning tool but it makes taking classes very convenient while working full time and spending time with my wife and two kids. I'm committed to continuous self-improvement in my career and the MEM program is helping me achieve that. The fact that I can pause a lecture has also been very beneficial; especially with kids around.
