Major

Engineering management examines the engineering relationships between the management tasks of staffing, organizing, planning, and financing and the human element involved in production, research, and service. 

 

Engineering management majors will study the engineering relationships among the management tasks of staffing, organizing, planning, financing and the human element in production, research, engineering, and service organizations. By emphasizing leadership in a technical setting, the program builds on the traditional roles of the basic and applied sciences for engineering and technology management. Engineering managers must understand the interaction of organizational, technical, and behavioral variables in order to build a productive engineering team. Majors get a technical foundation in a specific engineering field of their choice: civil, electrical, nuclear, infrastructure, environmental, software, chemical, or general engineering. The program also provides a solid base of courses in engineering economy, production operations management, supply chain engineering, quantitative business analysis, project management, and computer modeling in order to prepare graduates to lead in a technical environment.  

The engineering management program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET
