The Master of Engineering in Engineering Management program uses a blend of ISE courses and courses from the College of Business to focus on the management of the engineering and technological enterprise. It combines technological expertise with managerial skills. The program is housed in the Industrial and Systems Engineering Department.
Engineering Management is concerned with understanding the technology involved in an engineering project and the management process through which the technology is applied. This concentration deals with the dual role of the engineering manager; both as a technologist and a manager. The object is to provide a background in areas commonly needed in this role, such as organizational behavior, finance, and accounting, in addition to industrial engineering expertise. Students develop a program of study in conjunction with their advisor, that contains courses from the Saunders College of Business to complement the engineering course work.
