The minor in engineering management offered by Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering, is designed to provide students with the necessary skills for effective management and leadership of engineering-driven enterprises. The minor curriculum supplements the student's major 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. Engineering managers combine technical expertise with business knowledge to help lead organizations. Increasingly, technology-based enterprises are looking for engineers who understand successful business strategies. Additionally, engineering managers plan and coordinate large projects, leading a technical team from design through implementation. Please note, students may only apply to a minor in combination with an existing degree program. Please speak with your academic advisor to ensure this minor is applicable with your major.

Requirements

A student wishing to pursue a specific minor should consult an academic advisor in the unit offering that minor to ensure that an appropriate set of courses is taken. The student should also consult an academic advisor in the college or department of the major to make sure the college or department of the major allows the recognition of the minor.

Note: Certain major and minor combinations may be deemed inappropriate either by the college or department of the major or minor. Courses taken as part of a minor may not count toward both the major degree and the minor. Please contact the department for more information.
