The Society of Manufacturing Engineers will partner with Engineering Management Certification International (EMCI) on a certification program in engineering management among qualified engineers, scientists and technologists.

Effective July 15, SME will end its Certified Engineering Manager certification and merge it with the EMCI program. All previously SME-certified CEM’s will become certified through the Engineering Management Certification Fundamentals (EMCF) or Engineering Management Certification Professional (EMCP) designation.

“SME frequently collaborates with other engineering societies to develop the most beneficial results for members and customers,” said SME executive director and general manager Mark C. Tomlinson. “In that spirit, we are pleased to announce this partnership.”

Tomlinson also reassured those currently holding the CEM credential, “that the merger of the CEM and EMCI programs will provide a ‘more perfect union’ of SME’s strengths with those of the founding organizations.”
