Find your future

Multidisciplinary engineering prepares you to succeed in scientific or enterprise management roles.

The engineering management program augments engineering knowledge with advanced understanding of business practices, organizational behavior and management skills to enable students to succeed in scientific or engineering enterprise management roles. Prior to graduation, engineering management students shall acquire and demonstrate the following learning outcomes.

Program educational objectives

Three to five years after graduation, we expect our alumni to exhibit one or more of the following:

1. Leading multidisciplinary engineering teams through identifying, defining, planning, executing, controlling, managing risk, and closing of major engineering projects and problems that are reflected in their Industry Focus Areas*.

2. Acquiring new skills and training for lifelong learning through opportunities at their employer or through advanced study in graduate school or other special interest areas.

*Industry Focus Areas:  Software Industry, Mechanical Systems Industry, Sustainable and Environmentally Benign Industry, Electronics and Semiconductor Industry, Communication and Networks Industry, Power Systems Industry, Business Analytics Industry.

Student outcomes

The outcomes of the engineering management program detail the knowledge and skills that our graduates are expected to possess upon completion.

  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
