EM prefers students who pursue co-operative education to choose Co-op Option B.

Areas of Concentration

Engineering Management students can select their concentration elective courses among two technical electives and three general electives in various ways.  Some of the students may wish to cluster those electives in ways that would help them gain expertise in an area of specialization within Engineering Management.  The following groupings are possible specialty (concentration) areas that students can select from within the EM program:

Systems Engineering Concentration

EM 357 Elements of Operations Research (Fall)
EM 451 Analysis of Networks and Strategies
SYS 585 Introduction to Systems Architecture & Design

Financial Engineering Concentration

EM 357 Elements of Operations Research (Fall)
FE 530 Introduction to Financial Engineering
FE 535 Financial Risk Management

Students who chose the Financial Engineering concentration should take E243 and EM 364 in place of EM 365.

Engineering Management Minor

Required Courses for EM Minor
EM 301: Accounting and Business Analysis
EM 275: Project Management
EM 270: Management of Engineering and Technology
EM 360: Total Quality Management

EM minors are expected to take the following courses as part of their Engineering Curriculum:
Required Engineering Core
EM 365: Statistics for Engineering Managers or equivalent (E243)
EM 355: Engineering Economics
E 421 / TG 421: Entrepreneurial Analysis of Engineering Design

Required Humanities Core
BT 243: Macroeconomics
BT 244: Microeconomics

An EM minor requires a two course overload.
