Engineering Management Graduate Scholarship Fund
Help to defray tuition expenses for graduate students in a rapidly growing program. The MS Engineering Management program is designed to meet the needs of local engineering companies whose employees benefit from post-graduate managerial training. Especially in the current economic environment many companies cannot afford to underwrite tuition costs. At the same time university-wide funding for graduate scholarships is minimal. The DeMatteis School of Engineering and Applied Science seeks to build a fund that will support deserving graduate students in partially offsetting their tuition cost.
The Master of Science in Engineering Management (MSEM) gives practicing engineers the competitive edge necessary to advance to management positions in leading engineering and technology firms nationwide.
Graduates of the program will have the skills necessary to pursue successful careers as engineering managers, project engineers, and product engineers in government agencies and tech-based manufacturing and service firms.
Hofstra’s MS in Engineering Management degree is a 30-credit program that bridges the gap between the fields of engineering and business management. The program is comprised of courses offered at Hofstra’s Frank G. Zarb School of Business and the Fred DeMatteis School of Engineering and Applied Science.

- Operations Management
- Managerial Finance
- Information Systems for Managers
- Legal, Political, Regulatory and Ethical Environment of Business
The Fred DeMatteis School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS) - ranked in the top 15% nationwide of non-PhD granting engineering schools by US News World Report - is home to Hofstra's computer science and engineering departments. The DeMatteis School is distinguished by offering you hands-on research experience in state-of-the-art laboratory facilities, valuable pre-professional, on-the-job experience, and collaborative relationships with professors who are leaders in their fields.
The DeMatteis School currently serves approximately 785 students pursuing bachelor's degrees and 60 pursuing master’s degrees. The rapid and sustained growth we have experienced over the past seven years is the result of a great demand for graduates who have the skills and knowledge required to work in the technical sector and to contribute immediately to a company's mission in the marketplace.
