Use the following list of courses to learn more about the engineering management program.

Engineering Statistics

This course is intended to prepare engineering management students to design statistically valid experiments and to analyze the results of those experiments. Topics will include basic probability theory, confidence, hypothesis testing, regression and analysis of variance. (4 credit hours)

Six Sigma

This course presents an introduction to the six sigma DMAIC problem-solving methodology, including examples in a wide range of organizations. Topics include tools and techniques for product and process improvement and the application of basic and advanced statistics to problem solving. (4 credit hours)

Quality Systems

This course will focus on the concepts of total quality management including: philosophies and frameworks of quality management, incorporating quality into strategic planning, leadership, process measurement and management, continuous quality improvement, and ISO 9000. Original writings by major figures in the quality movement, such as Deming, Juran, Taguchi, etc., will be discussed. (3 credit hours)

Information Systems Engineering

This course introduces students to information systems within and across organizations. Information systems provide a primary source of information for management. Students will learn about the phases of design and implementation of information systems, as well as methods for keeping abreast of fast-paced changes in the IT world. (3 credit hours)

Database Information Systems

(3 credit hours)

Engineering Writing

This course is designed to help you develop the ability to think critically as a professional communicator. Learning to ask appropriate questions will enable you to understand, develop, and produce effective communication using the following elements of thought: purpose, basic concepts, information sources and needs, underlying assumptions, inferences/conclusions, implications/consequences, points of view, questions raised and addressed. Significant ethics discussions are included throughout this course. (3 credit hours)

Project Management

This course focuses on the development and utilization of network techniques, such as PERT and CPM, to schedule activities, develop financial budgets; allocate resources, and control progress and costs of practical projects. Students are introduced to using computer programs that generate and track project schedules. (4 credit hours)

Engineering Law

This course focuses on the study of the legal system including: domestic and international environments of intellectual property policy (including patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets); torts and various sources of personal, facility, products and enterprise liability; contracts and issues arising from various types of contractual relationships; and aspects of administrative law (dealing with agencies) and employment law. (3 credit hours)

Foundations of Engineering Management

The objective of this course is to help students develop an overall understanding of engineering and technology management skills they will need to be effective throughout their careers. It introduces the ways in which management principles are applied in the kinds of work they are most likely to encounter. Also included are aspects of globalization and how culture changes engineering management. (4 credit hours)

Engineering Management Project (Capstone)

Students are required to work on a project of their own choice in this course. Though not mandatory, they are encouraged to select a real-world engineering problem they are currently facing in their job. Students will report on their project problems, solutions, analyses, results, discussions, and conclusions. (3 credit hours)

    I currently hold a BS in Civil Engineering and an MBA in Operations Management. I’m looking at potentially going back to school for another degree and the MEM degree caught my attention (I currently work as the Engineering Manager for a food processing facility).

    I have 2 questions:

    a) Will the MEM degree be the same degree as if I was doing it on campus?
    b) Being a civil engineer, and going through an MBA I have taken plenty of Math and Statistics, will I have to repeat the statistics class?

    Thanks for your time to answering my question.

    Best regards,

    Ken Tirado, PE, MBA

    I have a degree in Geology and I’ve been working as geologist for more than 10 years in several fields (from exploration, mining to environmental and laboratory) I am wondering if a degree in Engineering Management is suited for me at this stage or is better to go through an MBA program? Also is your program targeted to several fields of engineering? e.g. Mining, Environmental? Thanks
