Engineers who hold bachelor's degrees and wish to advance in their field may want to consider enrolling in a master's degree program. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, these professionals can qualify for positions in research upon earning a graduate credential.

In an effort to help more adults in this field become eligible for pay increases and promotions, many schools are launching new degree tracks and improving their existing course offerings. For example, schools such as Indiana Tech are offering master's degrees in engineering management. According to a press release, the college is launching this program as an online option. ...

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is another school that is adding to its graduate-level engineering program. According to the university, its system design and management (SDM) degree will join the Master of Engineering Management Programs Consortium (MEMPC) - which also includes such prestigious institutions as Cornell, Dartmouth, Duke, Stanford and Northwestern.
