Dual Degree - ME in Engineering Management

Over and above the fact that students are able to complete their Bachelor and Master degrees in an accelerated manner, these dual programs offer a unique opportunity for outstanding undergraduate students to pursue. The combination of these programs provides a synergy that allows students to apply their learning between programs. For example, these programs will allow students to work through the thesis or capstone project process, that includes experiences that undergraduate students are not typically well-versed in, while completing undergraduate coursework (e.g., problem definition of ill-defined problems). Students can then apply these experiences towards some of their higher-level undergraduate courses (e.g., engineering design, project design), that require some of the same skills, and obtain a better understanding and appreciation for these undergraduate courses.

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.

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. Each student should develop a program of study in conjunction with their advisor, that contains up to four courses from the College of Business to complement the engineering course work.
