Engineering Management Coursework

This interdisciplinary program offers a core of coursework both in engineering and business, giving you a strong technical background coupled with business management skills. The business core includes courses in accounting, economics, marketing and management, augmented by two additional courses in a business management area.  The engineering core includes a small set of required courses in problem-solving and design in a selected engineering area, project management, and engineering economics.  Engineering depth is provided in the courses required for the concentration area.
