Graduate Certificate in Engineering Project Management and Leadership (PML)
The Graduate Certificate in Engineering Project Management and Leadership (PML) is designed to equip the STEM professional or current UMass Amherst graduate student in a STEM discipline with the necessary skills and competencies to manage and lead engineering and technology-based projects. To earn the PML, students need to complete the following three courses (9-credits):
- MIE 645: Project Budgeting and Finance for Engineers
- MIE 664: Engineering Leadership and Entrepreneurship
- MIE 670: Technical Project Management or Equivalent
For those desiring to further build their technology and engineering management and leadership abilities, the certificate offers a gateway to the MSEM with all 9-credits eligible to be counted towards the completion of the MSEM.
To enroll, the completion and submission of the Intention to Complete the Graduate Certificate in Engineering Project Management and Leadership (PML) is mandatory and should be done prior to you taking your first PML class. You must be registered at UMass Amherst as a graduate student in a STEM discipline or as a non-degree graduate student before completing this form. Please note that completion of the PML certificate does not automatically qualify a student for the MSEM program and completion of the certificate by a non-degree graduate student does not imply admission to the University in a specific academic program.
