Our early-entry track is an option for undergraduate students with junior standing looking to matriculate into the MEM program. Students have the option to begin the program during the summer before their senior year and then resume their undergraduate curriculum in the fall. Once the students graduate with their undergraduate degree, they can then resume their MEM studies the following fall semester since their summer semester courses will have been completed already.

The first MEM class graduated in 2003. TiME (The Institute for Management and Engineering-a joint program between the Case School of Engineering and Weatherhead School of Management) was one of the first to offer an MEM program. It was established at CWRU in 2000 with a US $4.2 million endowment from the Timken Foundation and continues to evolve to meet the needs of students and industry.

Classes are held three days a week (typically Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday). This allows two days of the week (typically Thursday and Friday) for students to work at their internship.
