Engineering Management- Bachelor of Science in Engineering

For information, contact the College of Engineering and Computing Dean's Office, 513-529-0700 or visit http://miamioh.edu/cec/academics/interdisciplinary-majors/engineering-management/index.html.

Engineering Management offers an interdisciplinary approach to address the complexities in today's workplace. Many of today's highly competitive global businesses require employees that have a solid technical background complemented with business knowledge and a foundation in liberal education. The Engineering Management program includes courses in engineering, business, science, mathematics, and the liberal arts and is designed to help you develop engineering and business expertise, social awareness, and interpersonal communication skills. Students earn a Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree.

Student Outcomes

The following are the student outcomes for the Engineering Management program at Miami University. These are common outcomes for each of the concentrations: Electronics and Computing, Manufacturing Engineering, Environmental Engineering, and Paper Science and Engineering.  Students should attain the following outcomes by the time of graduation:

1. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics

2. an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors

3. an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences

4. an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts

5. an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives

6. an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions

7. an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.

Engineering Management with Electronics and Computing Concentration

This concentration provides a foundation in electrical and computer engineering while developing the skills necessary to manage the development of products, including computers and other electronics. Graduates can have an impact on the needs of a global society whose reliance on electronics and computing is ever-increasing.  The additional student outcomes for this concentration are:

  • an ability to solve electrical, computer, and related problems in a business or engineering environment by applying computing, business, math, science, and engineering fundamentals.
  • an ability to manage the design and creation of electrical and computer systems to meet client needs in business and engineering applications.

Engineering Management with Manufacturing Engineering Concentration

This concentration addresses product and process design. It requires the ability to plan the practices of manufacturing; to research and develop tools, manufacturing processes, machines and equipment, and control strategies; and to integrate the facilities and systems so that quality products can be produced at a competitive cost. The additional student outcomes for this concentration are:

  • an ability to design manufacturing processes, products and the corresponding processing machinery and to create competitive advantage by manufacturing planning, strategy, and control
  • an ability to analyze, synthesize, and control manufacturing operations using statistical methods and to make technical inferences about a manufacturing process by measuring process variables.

Engineering Management with Environmental Engineering Concentration

This concentration provides a foundation in environmental engineering while developing the skills necessary to achieve practical and economical solutions to environmental challenges pertaining to industry and society.  Graduates will have an impact on our global progress toward achieving a sustainable society.  The additional student outcomes for this concentration are:

  • an ability to demonstrate the ability to plan, identify, design, and assess pollution prevention alternatives and pollution control processes for industry and for society
  • an ability to demonstrate the organizational, leadership and general communication skills needed by an environmental professional.

Engineering Management with Paper Science and Engineering Concentration

This concentration provides a foundation in paper science and engineering while developing the technical knowledge, skills, and talents required to achieve practical solutions to challenges in the paper industry or for a company allied to the paper industry. Graduates will have an impact on innovation and progress toward sustainability in the pulp and paper sector.  The additional student outcomes for this concentration are:

  • an ability to demonstrate the ability to plan, identify, design, and assess solutions to challenges in the paper industry or for a company allied to the paper industry.
  • an ability to demonstrate the organizational, leadership and general communication skills needed by professionals in the global pulp and paper industry

Credit/No Credit Policy

All courses in chemistry, physics, biology, mathematics, statistics, those in the College of Engineering and Computing (CPB, CSE, ECE, EGM, MME, CEC) and those in the business core that are used to fulfill requirements of the major, must be taken for a grade.

Divisional Policy

DOUBLE MAJORS: Students with two majors in the College of Engineering and Computing must take a minimum of 15 different/additional credit hours in their second major beyond the requirements of their first major.

Program Requirements

The number of hours needed to graduate depends on your choice of concentration, Thematic Sequence, and mathematical preparation. Course requirements for the Miami Plan are listed in that chapter. Many of the courses taken to fulfill the Miami Plan can be used to fill other requirements of this program. Additional hours beyond the minimum required for a bachelor's degree at Miami may be needed based on concentration and thematic sequence.
