Overview of the ASEM Certification Options

Engineering management is the art and science of planning, organizing, allocating resources, and directing and controlling activities which have a technological or systems component. Engineers whose job requires them to complete projects on time and on schedule, work in teams, and assume management or leadership duties must solve complex problems that require expertise and training in these principles. To promote the practice of engineering management and to provide general standards for good practices, ASEM provides two certification options: individual professional certification and graduate degree certification.

Professional Certification and Training

In engineering and technology fields, everyone must understand the basics in the Engineering Management Body of Knowledge (EMBoK) whether they are leading a team or department or are members of a complex project team.  Many individuals with technical and scientific degrees did not have the opportunity to take courses and develop the skills in building the bridge between technical success and the business, organizational, and people success areas. Educational programs, professional trainers, and training organizations have the opportunity to use these certifications to validate learning and to assure value for the time spent. For professional development and to recognize levels of expertise, ASEM provides two professional certifications:


Certified Associate in Engineering Management (CAEM) 

For individuals new to their engineering, technology, and science careers.


Certified Professional in Engineering Management (CPEM)


For individuals who have several years of experience involved in project execution, design, team activities, leadership, and management.


Graduate Degree Certification

In recent years, there has been a proliferation of engineering and technology management related degrees and there is a need for quality and consistency benchmark.  To address this issue, to support those seeking advanced degrees in our field, ASEM certifies MS programs that meet rigorous standards of excellence.
