M.S. in Engineering Management students give thumbs-up at CEIE semester kickoff

Students note at-work improvements at get-go


The inaugural class of Clarkson University's Master of Science in Engineering Management (MSEM) kicked off a new semester at the Institute's Center for Environmental Innovation and Education (CEIE) in Beacon over the January 12 weekend, the half-way mark for the two-year program. When asked about their experience at work since starting the MSEM program, students noted improvements early on:


"From the first semester of the program I was able to utilize skills," says Hannah Henley who works in technical marketing for INFICON in Syracuse. "The project management and negotiation skills come into play daily in my work."


Gregory Merchel, an employee of National Grid in Albany adds: "It seems like from day one I was able to use what I learned in class. I definitely think once it's all over I'll come out a better employee, a better engineer and a better supervisor. I definitely think this will move my career along."
