Full Program Description

The Gordon Engineering Leadership Program (GEL) is a transformational graduate program designed to build a future corps of engineering leadership professionals. GEL seeks to accelerate leadership development in an engineering context through a concentrated curriculum of course work, mentoring, and an industry-focused challenge project. Graduates of the program, known as Gordon Fellows, stand out from their peers in their ability to invent, innovate, and implement engineering projects from concept to market success.

Most students pursue GEL as part of a Master of Science degree in the engineering discipline of their choice. Upon completion, students earn both the Master of Science degree and a Graduate Certificate in Engineering Leadership. Students who already hold a graduate degree in engineering can complete the program to earn a Graduate Certificate in Engineering Leadership. The core GEL curriculum takes place during one calendar year (September–August), and additional course work required for the Master of Science degree can be pursued before, after, or in parallel with GEL.
