Professional Science Masters in Engineering and Business
Online courses to meet the needs of busy professionals.
The Professional Science Masters (PSM) in Engineering and Business is intended for students who have a B.S. in engineering or engineering technology who want to advance into management positions. The degree combines advanced engineering and business courses with applied field experience. The applied field experience integrates the new skills learned by the student with their needs and the needs of their employer.
The online courses will use Adobe Connect Pro, which allows the courses to be received on any computer with a high speed internet connection. Students can text message the instructor during class, ask questions, and if the student?s computer has a camera, the instructor will be able to see them. No software is needed for the receiving computer - it is all web based. Although this is a synchronous course and students are expected to attend during the class time, the lectures will be recorded so that students can watch them at a later time.

"The PSM degree was the perfect option for my graduate studies. As an engineering manager it is important to stay current with technology and to understand business. The PSM offered both and all the courses were on-line so I was able to continue to work full-time and complete my degree. I worked closely with my advisor, Dr Abedi, from the Electrical Engineering department and he was able to easily adapt to my needs as a distance student. Dr Abedi helped me set up an internship project and provided excellent advice as I worked to meet the needs of the company and the University requirements for a successful internship. It was a comprehensive and challenging program and I am very pleased to be the first to complete the PSM at Umaine." - Hilary Henry '94, G '13 PSM

Background: Professional Science Masters (PSM) degree in Engineering and Business consists of 15 credits of engineering courses, nine credits of business courses, and six credits of applied field experience.
• BUA 605 Creating & Capturing Value in the Digital Economy
• BUA 651 Financial Management
• BUA 400 Introduction to Accounting
• ECO 410 Accelerated Introductory Economics
The anchor course for the 15 credits of engineering courses is GEE 486 Advanced Project Management (3 cr.hr.). This is a required core competence as engineers move into management positions. The remaining 12 credits of engineering courses would focus on the student's engineering discipline.
With permission, other courses may be substituted for those listed for a track. Prior graduate courses that have been taken by students will be considered on a case by case basis. Students must complete an additional 12 credits of approved advanced engineering courses and 9 credits of approved business or economics courses.
