Engineering Management is an ABET accredited engineering degree that integrates business and management knowledge into an engineering curriculum to prepare engineers for leadership roles in technology-based organizations. The Engineering Management curriculum combines breadth of knowledge of general engineering subject matter with depth of knowledge in a specific engineering discipline. Students typically achieve depth of knowledge by acquiring a formal Minor in a selected engineering program. In addition, multi-disciplinary coursework prepares graduate engineers for positions in that require human resource and project management, financial modeling, marketing, and communication skills to complement their engineering knowledge. Graduates from our Engineering Management Program have found employment positions including Quality Engineering, Technical Sales & Marketing, Project Management, Construction Management, and Reliability Engineering.
