Dartmouth Engineering

Program Options

Standard MEM Degree

The stand-alone MEM program requires 14 courses and is typically completed in 15 months, starting in the fall term (September) and completing the following November.  

BE + MEM Degree

Students enrolled in Dartmouth’s BE program (Dartmouth AB/BE and Dual-Degree students) who wish to build out their technical management knowledge should consider applying to the MEM program.  BE+MEM students work towards both degrees simultaneously, typically reducing the time needed to complete both degrees by one term.  Students are encouraged to apply to the MEM program during their senior year.

MBA + MEM Degree

Students interested in gaining the full range of both the management skills taught at Tuck School of Business and the technical skills taught at Thayer School of Engineering will benefit from this joint degree. Students can complete both degrees in a total of eight terms (including one summer). Candidates must complete the separate admission and financial aid application processes at each school. It is recommended that students apply and enroll at Tuck first, then apply to Thayer during their first year at Tuck.

Focus Area Certificates

MEM Students have the option to target their studies toward a specific field of interest. Students who complete three electives (at least 2.5 course credits) in one of the focus areas, and receive a P or HP for their ENGG 390 project in that same area, will be awarded a certificate of completion upon graduation from the MEM program.

Focus areas:

  • Operations and Analytics
  • Healthcare Systems
  • Energy and the Environment
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Management of Design
