Engineering Management
Graduates with an accredited degree in engineering management have gained a strong understanding of the engineering relationships between the management tasks of planning, organization, leadership, control, and the human element in production, research, and service organizations. Engineering managers work in most industries, particularly on larger projects or programs which require overarching organization and planning to ensure success.

Those interested in a career in engineering management should consider reviewing engineering programs that are accredited by ABET, Inc. If you choose to attend a program that is not ABET accredited, you should be sure that the university is regionally accredited. Engineering Management students take courses such as Accounting, Finance, Marketing, Operations Management, General Management, Strategic Management, Management of Technology, Industrial and Quality Engineering, and Manufacturing and Packaging Engineering. 

Students seeking engineering management jobs enhance their employment opportunities by participating in internship or co-op programs offered through their schools. These experiences provide the students with broad knowledge and experience, making them more attractive candidates to employers. Many universities offer co-op and internship programs for students studying engineering management. Click here for more information.
