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.

Many of today’s global businesses require graduates with interdisciplinary skills in engineering and business. This program provides you with an interdisciplinary education in engineering, business and management, science, mathematics, and liberal education. You choose an engineering concentration (manufacturing engineering, electronics and computing engineering, environmental engineering, or paper science and engineering) and a Thematic Sequence of courses, as well as a variety of choices within the foundation courses of the Miami Plan. This broad educational experience will help you address technological problems in their large organizational and societal contexts. You can gain valuable work experience through an internship or co-op in  business or industry.

As a graduate, you will be qualified to fill technical positions that require interaction with business aspects of operations, purchasing, personnel, accounting, and marketing. Examples of such positions include technical sales, line supervision, purchasing, environmental protection, and quality control.

Educational Objectives

The following are the educational objectives/student outcomes of the Miami University Engineering Management program with Manufacturing Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Paper Science and Engineering, or Electronics and Computing Concentrations.

Engineering Management with Manufacturing Engineering Concentration

The concentration develops students who:

  • solve problems by applying the knowledge required for engineering managers.
  • solve engineering problems by applying mathematics, basic sciences, and engineering science.
  • solve engineering problems by applying engineering design.
  • verbally communicate effectively information related to their work.
  • write effectively information related to their work.
  • serve as an effective team member.
  • serve as an effective team leader.
  • serve on multidisciplinary teams.
  • integrate and utilize fundamental knowledge in computing, business, and liberal arts in their job.
  • know and practice ethical responsibility as outlined by the Engineering Code of Ethics.
  • engage in continuous learning and intellectual growth.

Engineering Management with Environmental Engineering Concentration

The educational objectives of the concentration are to:

  • Enable a student to gain the technical knowledge, skills, and talents required of an environmental engineer to achieve practical and economical solutions to environmental challenges pertaining to industry and society.
  • Enable a student to develop the organizational, leadership and general communication skills needed by professionals at the entry-level and beyond.
  • Promote the development of key personal attributes desirable in an engineering graduate.

Engineering Management with Paper Science Concentration

The educational objectives of the concentration are to:

  • Enable a student to gain the technical knowledge, skills, and talents required to allocate resources to achieve practical solutions to challenges in the paper industry or for a company allied to the paper industry.
  • Enable a student to develop the organizational, leadership, and general communication skills needed by professionals at the entry-level and beyond.
  • Promote the development of key personal attributes desirable in an engineering graduate.

The major will have sound grounding in engineering, sciences, and liberal education, which will facilitate successful pursuit of graduate studies in engineering or other professional degrees, such as business, law, or medicine.

Engineering Management with Electronics and Computing Concentration

The concentration develops students who:

  • Solve electrical, computer, and related problems in a business or engineering environment by applying computing, business, math, science, and engineering fundamentals.
  • Design and create electrical and computer systems to meet client needs in business and engineering applications.
  • Apply business management skills in a technical environment.
  • Communicate effectively orally and in writing.
  • Serve as an effective team member.
  • Serve as an effective team leader.
  • Serve on multidisciplinary teams.
  • Integrate and utilize fundamental knowledge of engineering, business, and liberal arts in their job.
  • Know and practice ethical and social responsibility.
  • Engage in continuous learning and intellectual growth.

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.

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.
