The B.S. in Engineering Management is a new program and it is not accredited. The Department is planning to seek accreditation in the near future.
More than two-thirds of all engineering professionals invest a significant portion of their career in managing and administering a wide range of technical engineering and research projects and budgets. As the engineering profession evolves, an increasing need has emerged for entry-level engineering professionals who have both a broad engineering background and the knowledge and ability to interface between the business and technical functions of organizations.
Undergraduate Engineering Management majors learn engineering fundamentals, together with the art and science of planning, organizing, allocating resources, and directing and controlling activities in technological environments. The Bachelor of Science Degree in Engineering Management equips entry-level engineers with knowledge of the business of engineering, making them valuable to their employers and ensuring future professional growth. For students who enjoy people and technology, the technical challenges of engineering and the opportunity to integrate higher-level organizational considerations into technological decision-making processes, engineering management is an ideal program of study.
The Undergraduate Engineering Management Degree Program includes studies in basic mathematics and sciences, the engineering sciences, engineering management disciplinary studies and technical electives, as well as general education. The selection of technical electives can be tailored to particular areas of student interest. The team project experiences in many courses approximate the professional environment that graduates will encounter in their future careers. Program culminating experiences include community service learning course projects and Capstone course design projects. Students also have access to well-equipped laboratories, including computing laboratories with discipline-specific software programs that are essential to achievement of program objectives.
