To provide an education based on a strong engineering core, complemented by studies in business, technology, systems and management, and to prepare the graduate to work at the interface between technology/engineering and management, and be able to assume positions of increasing technical and managerial responsibility.
The objectives of the engineering management (EM) program can be summarized as follows:
- EM graduates define, design, develop and assess solutions, as well as manage resources and processes to address complex multidisciplinary problems through their strong broad-based foundation and engineering management education and knowledge of modern technological tools.
- EM graduates effectively lead and work on multidisciplinary project teams and are able to communicate and solve real world problems using knowledge and tools gained from their engineering management education.
- EM graduates continue sustained intellectual growth in the corporate or academic world.
- EM graduates successfully adapt to diverse technological and societal conditions to bring innovative, flexible and ethical solutions to their work.

By the time of graduation, Engineering Management students will have:
- An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
- An ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors.
- An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
- An ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts.
- An ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
- An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
- An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
- A fundamental knowledge and an appreciation of the technology and business processes necessary to nurture new technologies from concept to commercialization.
