The Master of Science in Engineering Management (MEM) is a non-thesis program conducted by the Industrial Engineering Department of Middle East Technical University. The program is primarily carried out in the evenings and class meetings are held at 18:10-21:00 to facilitate attendance of the working students.

The MEM program is specifically designed for working individuals with engineering background. It aims to equip its participants with the perfect blend of engineering skills and practical business knowledge.

The program admitted its first students in the Spring semester of 1999-2000 academic year and delivered its first graduates in 2001. Currently the program has about 150 active students.

Since the beginning, we observe that MEM graduates significantly improve their ability to successfully lead the organizations they work for, with the improved awareness of financial aspects, risks and trade-offs associated with the decisions they have to make. For engineers with a managerial position in mind, the MEM program is an excellent choice.
