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.
