Prospective Students

If you’re an aspiring leader considering a graduate degree in engineering, the Gordon Engineering Leadership Program wants to hear from you.

“I can honestly say that I wouldn’t be on the fast track I am currently on without participating in the Gordon Program.”

Cory Lloyd, Gordon Fellow

GIEL is an excellent opportunity for highly motivated, technically competent, post-baccalaureate engineers who are interested in leadership development. Each year, a select number of students earn the distinguished title of “Gordon Fellow” through this competitive engineering program.

GIEL is different than an MBA, because it focuses on leadership in an engineering context, rather than general management.

GIEL is more than a traditional MS degree, because it helps promising young engineers accelerate the development of their leadership skills and broaden their cross-functional capabilities.

As a participant, you will:

  • Advance your career with support from a personalized team of academic and industry mentors
  • Increase your competitive advantage by developing cross-functional engineering capabilities
  • Learn to inspire and influence teams to deliver superior results for your organization
  • Pursue an intense, market-worthy Challenge Project based on your organization’s strategic needs

Upon completion, you will earn a Master of Science degree in the engineering discipline of your choice and/or a Graduate Certificate in Engineering Leadership.
