"The GISE program trains you to manage projects from a systems, global, and multicultural perspective."
"The courses teach the theory behind composites, so you are more confident in everything you do."
Electrical Engineering Professional Master's
Hansen chose to go back to school when he reached the classic "fork in the road" for senior engineers — go into management or deeper into the technical side.
"All the professors in the PMP are leaders in their respective fields and they bring so much value to the courses."
