The Bachelor program requires 173 credits, consisting of 136 credits in spring/fall semesters, 4 credits in senior projects, 18 credits in summer practice and military training, and 15 credits of a final thesis. The courses are classified into five categories: Humanities and Social Sciences, core engineering courses, core Industrial Engineering courses, summer practice and internship, and a thesis component.
International programs have been initiated since 2001 including Tsinghua-Aachen joint master program and Tsinghua-Gatech exchange program. And a two-year, professional-orientated master’s program in Management Science and Engineering (Global Manufacturing) was founded in 2009 for students with a global vision in management science and engineering, with special focus on the manufacturing industry in China.
The doctoral degree program usually lasts 3 to 5 years. Students with Master’s degree usually spend 3 to 4 years. The program has 22 credits consisting of 13 credits of core courses, and 5 credits of research requirements. Students without an IE related Master’s degree shall take prerequisite courses suggested by the advisor.

3. Advantages of Tsinghua IMEM
In 2010, the Ministry of Education of China initiated the professional master degree program of engineering management, in order to meet the great and urgent needs of talents for the rapid development of modern engineering. In 2012, the first cohort of 70 students were admitted to the Master of Engineering Management (MEM) program of Tsinghua University. The number of enrollments has been growing year by year. In 2015, the MEM Education Center, which is in charge of the management and operation of the program was set up; and in 2016, the Center launched the international Master of Engineering Management program (IMEM).
The IMEM program at Tsinghua was based on several years of success of the domestic MEM education program, which trained Chinese engineering management talents. IMEM is tailored to meet the needs of global engineering projects in the globalization context. It is the first such program in China. It is distinctive among graduate programs in terms of its flexibility, multidisciplinary curriculum and opportunities of cross-cultural communication and collaboration.
(1) Flexible study options: MOOC courses are available for certain required courses, offering greater flexibility to students, especially those who have difficulties studying full time on-campus for two years.
(2) Multidisciplinary curriculum, which combines state-of-the-art engineering advancements, industry leading knowledge in management , along with training in business, finance, information technology, culture and related areas.
(3) Immersion class, which includes well-designed visits and hands-on practice in a cross-cultural context, to improve teamwork, leadership and communication skills.
