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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. EM graduates continue sustained intellectual growth in the corporate or academic world.
  4. EM graduates successfully adapt to diverse technological and societal conditions to bring innovative, flexible and ethical solutions to their work.

The bachelor's degree program in engineering management is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. Learn more about enrollment and graduation data.

Student Outcomes

 By the time of graduation, Engineering Management students will have:

  1. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
  2. 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.
  3. An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
  7. An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
  8. A fundamental knowledge and an appreciation of the technology and business processes necessary to nurture new technologies from concept to commercialization.
