The OEM Program awards an MS degree in Industrial and Systems Engineering with an engineering management track. Classes for the program are held off-campus, providing busy working professionals with the opportunity to obtain an engineering Master’s degree from a highly ranked university, and with no career interruption. Students meet only one weekend per month (all day Saturday and Sunday) for 20 months, and receive live instruction from accomplished UF faculty who travel from Gainesville to teach in this program.

The next program will meet in Orlando, with classes beginning in August 2013.

For many students, the OEM Program is a solution to the problem of whether to get a technical master’s degree or an MBA. For students who decide that they want both degrees, a concurrent degree option is now also available and requires only 12 more months of coursework (32 months total to earn both degrees).
