The Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) has established a partnership with Engineering Management Certification International (EMCI), a program that facilitates and maintains competence in engineering management among qualified engineers, scientists, and technologists. Effective July 15, SME closed its Certified Engineering Manager (CEM) certification and merged it with the EMCI program. All previously SME-certified CEMs will become certified through the Engineering Management Certification Fundamentals (EMCF) or Engineering Management Certification Professional (EMCP) designation. The EMCI program will also align SME with other leading engineering and management associations. For more information, visit
