The Engineering Management program combines core courses in both engineering and management fields with advanced business courses to provide the graduate the ability to design, improve, and solve problems to create and deliver value to customers.

Engineering Management majors begin their studies in an engineering discipline, developing the fundamental analysis, critical thinking, and creative problem-solving skills traditionally associated with engineering. Engineering Management majors then take advanced business courses and apply those analysis, critical thinking, and creative problem-solving skills to integrate business processes with the human element of management, to improve these processes throughout the supply chain.
