Rapid change is a feature of today’s competitive environment in the technology driven Engineering Management (EMGT) academic programs. The EMGT outreach graduate programs have effectively responded to these technology driven changes by continuously re-engineering their initiatives. Success of these outreach programs are due to their evolutionary nature and their ability to adapt to industry needs. Therefore, it is accurate to state, the outreach programs have evolved by growing with industry, technology, and student demands. Fortunately, budgetary reductions and restricted fiscal constraints have not affected the quality of these programs and curricula. The University of Missouri in Rolla (UMR) outreach programs have been outstanding fiscally as well as academically. For years, they have been expanding and delivering high quality EMGT education at a low cost while satisfying demographic limitations. This paper will analyze and discuss each one of these programs and curricula. The outreach graduate programs that will be addressed consist of the following academic curricula: National Technological University (NTU), US Army Engineering School (USAES) at Ft. Leonard Wood, McDonnell Douglas Corporation, University of Missouri in St. Louis Engineering Education Center (EEC), and 3M Corporation.

UMR is internationally known for its quality programs. In 1996, UMR was awarded the Missouri Quality award; the only academic institution of higher learning with such an honor. UMR’s engineering programs are accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET).
