The mission of the EM Program is to provide an education based on a strong engineering core, complemented by studies in business, technology, systems and management, to prepare the graduate to work at the interface between technology/engineering and management, and to be able to assume positions of increasing technical and managerial responsibility. The objectives of the 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 possess the knowledge, skills, and attributes needed to 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 EM Program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET).
