Where Are They Now?

MEM graduates have immense flexibility to work as practicing engineers or to focus more on the business side. Companies find MEM graduates to be well-rounded engineers that see the “big picture” due to their unique curriculum. This positions our graduates to be very successful in getting coveted internships and “Leadership Development Pro­gram” positions at major companies, introducing them to multiple facets of the business, and preparing them for a “fast track” to promotion. Due to this, MEM graduates tend to secure higher starting salaries than their peers who pursue other engineering and business majors. Given the level of competition in seeking employment, employers look to hire people who are educationally well-suited for their fields. MEM provides the tools you will need to be competitive.

Graduate Education After MEM

Some of our graduates go on to pursue advanced degrees in Business, Law or Engineering after graduation, with a few even beginning their graduate education while still an undergraduate student through UConn School of Business' MS-BAPM 4+1 program. In the 4+1 program, MEM students are able to begin by taking a couple graduate-level courses while still earning their undergraduate degree. This allows them to get credit for those courses twice - once for the B.S. degree and once for their M.S. degree - while paying for those credits at the undergraduate credit rate. For more information, please visit the MS-BAPM program page.
