Engineering Management

The concentration in engineering management is designed to provide the student with skills for effective management and leadership of engineering-driven enterprises. The curriculum supplements other BIS concentrations by adding to the breadth of engineering science and design, and equips the student with additional management and design skills. This knowledge is augmented with an understanding of business practices, organizational behavior and management skills to enable the graduate to succeed in the management of a scientific or engineering enterprise. Topics such as project and resource management, financial engineering, risk management, configuration management, service plans, product liability, entrepreneurship and operations management are covered, in addition to product design and process development.
