Engineering management prepares students for leadership roles in high-tech industries. Undergraduates gain business skills and engineering design knowledge to position themselves for careers in various industries. Students are steeped in all aspects of business management, including human resource, project and construction management; financial modeling; communications; and marketing and sales. Students learn to translate customer needs into new technologies and to foster international ties for success in the global economy. Engineering management graduates are working as project managers, factory managers, construction managers, quality engineers, reliability engineers, and sales and marketing professionals. Some go on to launch their own high-tech firms.
