Our academic program was the first program in an engineering school to be accredited by the Project Management Institute’s (PMI) Global Accreditation Center. We are also designated by PMI as a “Global Registered Educational Provider". Our on-line graduate program continues to grow at a rapid pace since it was introduced in 2006 and filled over 400 seats in 2011.
