Engineering Management- Bachelor of Science in Engineering

For information, contact the Chair, SEAS Engineering Management Committee, 56 Engineering Building (513-529-0712).

Many of today’s global businesses require graduates with interdisciplinary skills in engineering and business. This program provides you with an interdisciplinary education in engineering, business and management, science, mathematics, and liberal education. You choose an engineering specialty (manufacturing engineering, environmental engineering, paper science and engineering or systems analysis) and a Thematic Sequence of courses in another discipline, as well as a variety of choices within the foundation courses of the Miami Plan. This broad educational experience will help you address technological problems in their large organizational and societal contexts. You can gain valuable work experience by participating in our co-op or internship programs.

As a graduate, you will be qualified to fill technical positions that require interaction with business aspects of operations, purchasing, personnel, accounting, and marketing. Examples of such positions include technical sales, line supervision, purchasing, environmental protection, and quality control.
