Engineering Management Interdisciplinary Baccalaureate Program
The program leads to the degree, Bachelor of Science in Engineering, with a major in Engineering Management.
Many of today's highly competitive global businesses involve technology and require people that have a solid technical background coupled with business and liberal education. Engineering management offers an interdisciplinary approach to address complexities in today's workplace. This program provides a broad academic background, including engineering, business, science, mathematics, and the liberal arts.
The engineering management curriculum consists of an engineering and business core complemented by a concentration in a technical specialty area. There are currently five specialty areas in engineering and computing for Engineering Management majors: Manufacturing Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Paper Science and Engineering, Systems Analysis, and Electronics and Computing. Although there are five specialty areas in Engineering Management, there are many commonalities in the curricula, which are shown here:
Each major will have an advisor in the department most closely related to the selected specialty area. For more information about the specific specialty areas in Engineering Management, please contact the home department of the specialty area, as provided in Table 1 below:
