ASEM Engineering Management 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 best practices, ASEM provides two certification options: individual professional certification and graduate degree certification.


Certified Associate in Engineering Management (CAEM) 

For individuals planning to enter or new to engineering, technology, and science careers.


Certified Professional in Engineering Management (CPEM)


For individuals who have several years of experience involved in multiple domains of the EMBoK such as project execution, design, team activities, leadership, and management.


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. ASEM’s Engineering Management Certification programs provide the needed foundation for professional success for working and managing technical enterprises. Individuals, educational programs, professional trainers, and training organizations have the opportunity to use these certifications to validate learning and to assure value for the time investment spent. For professional development and to recognize levels of expertise, ASEM provides two professional certifications. Find out more about professional certification
