Engineering Management B.S.EM.

The curriculum leading to the degree of Bachelor of Science in Engineering Management is offered in cooperation with the School of Business Administration. Engineering management is a broad discipline concerned with the art and science of planning, organizing, directing, and controlling activities that have technical components. Designing, producing, selling, and servicing products in the marketplace require managers with both the ability to apply engineering principles and the skills to manage technical projects and people. The curriculum is designed to combine a basic education in an engineering discipline with the study of management concepts and techniques. The curriculum also includes the study of economics, along with coursework in other social science and/or humanities fields. Candidates for this degree must earn a minimum of 123 credits.

 

The Engineering Management major offers three concentrations:

Civil and Environmental Engineering Concentration

Electrical Engineering Concentration

Mechanical Engineering Concentration

Civil and Environmental Engineering Concentration
