Industrial Engineering - Engineering Management Concentration
The concentration in engineering management prepares you for management roles in engineering settings. It focuses on management of technology and intellectual property, research and development, engineering and technical projects, people, resources, organizations, quality and team-based projects.
Preparing You for Success
You learn how business interests work together with engineering principles to provide goods and services for the global economy. Industrial Engineering core courses give you a foundation in engineering analysis, statistics, math and computer applications. Additionally, in this concentration, you complete a management minor from the Foster College of Business. With this knowledge, you’re equipped with technical, business and interpersonal skills you will need to manage technology, people and resources.
By the time you graduate, your experiences may include:
- Strategic management of firm's human capital in the context of the human resource management
- Theory and practice of organizational leadership skills
- Applying methods of effective interpersonal interactions, increasing self-awareness in order to better inform an understanding of others
- Networking and professional development through student organizations, such as the American Society for Quality, the Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers and APICS (the association for supply chain management)
- Research projects, study abroad programs, co-op programs, internships and a semester-long senior design project.
Making Your Mark
Engineering management concentration is valuable in manufacturing companies, retail companies, and service industries such as hospitals, government, logistics companies, and consulting firms. In recent years, almost all industrial engineering students found jobs or continued their education within six months of graduation. They’re working at places such as Accenture, Amazon, Caterpillar, John Deere, Kohler, Microsoft and SpaceX.
