GRE Scores for Engineering Management
GRE Scores for Engineering Management - MS and MBA programmes make up for most of the higher education enrollments abroad by international students. However, a range of new courses are cropping up for exploration by international students who want to go beyond the traditional MS and MBA programmes. Universities are coming up with tailor made courses for students who wish to learn the aspects of multiple fields triggered by demands in the job market. One of the most popular among them is the Master of Engineering Management programme or MEM. Engineering Management is specialised management programme which includes the application of engineering principles and techniques with business and management subjects. Also known as the Engineer’s MBA it is, essentially, pursued by engineers as well as scientists who want to understand and master the managerial aspects of their work.
Many universities around the world offer Engineering Management. However in most cases, it is offered under different department or course heads. For eg, Kings’ College London offers an MSc in Engineering with Business Management while Hong Kong University of Science and Technology offers an MSc Engineering Enterprise Management programme. MEM, as a specific degree, is commonly offered in universities across the USA, although it is not so uncommon in Australia either.
Being an interdisciplinary course combining engineering and management, universities offering MEM accept scores of both GRE and GMAT. However, most of the universities opt for GRE scores for engineering management as it is applicable for both engineering and management related courses.
Keeping this in mind, we bring you the GRE scores for engineering management courses in the USA which will give you an idea of the acceptable average GRE scores.

If I want to go to uk, canada or usa to pursue higher studies, which exam should i give? GMAT,GRE,SAT,ACT, TOEFL OR IELTS? Also, please give me a comparisons between these exams
The type of exam should you give depends on the University you're looking for and also the course.
SAT or ACT is basically for Undergraduate courses while GRE and GMAT is for Postgraduate courses. TOEFL and IELTS are basically English Proficiency tests. They are given by the candidates whose native language is not English, it too varies according to the university. Every university has it's different criteria but if you're looking for Undergraduate course then you should give SAT as it is accepted by many universities and the language exam based on what the university is accepting.
LPU is not AICTE Approved neither a Demmed University ? I know its UGC Approved but , Will it cause problem in Higher studies Abroad and in India (GRE/GMAT/GATE) or problems in Off Campus Placement and Company Switching ? Please Give Correct Answer !!!! DO NOT GIVE LPU WEBSITE NOT HAVING AICTEREASON
I want to mention here very clearly that Lovely Professional University does not require an AICTE approval as it is not any regulatory authority. Every university requires approval of a statutory body of the Government of India i.e UGC and LPU is UGC recognised which got established u/s 2F of UGC act and is not a deemed university rather a full fledged private university.
# The another point which you have highlighted is of clearing GATE/GRE/GMAT exam to do your studies abroad , I want to highlight that you can pursue the same without any exam as LPU is having more than 200 tie-ups(with certain conditions) with the countries like USA, UK, Canada and many more and the option of Credit Tansfer or International Exposure can be opted. In addition to this, thousands of students cleared GRE/GMAT/GATE exam after completing their studies from LPU and are successfully studying in their dream countries without any hurdle.
# To my knowledge LPU floats Pathways out of which one of the pathway is Government job in which the subjects required to compete in exam for Government job is floated and taught by the expert faculty. So, you can well imagine that LPU assists in getting your dream of Government Job true and many students are working in Government Jobs that too at high posts.
Hope this information will help you!
