Course Information

Core Courses:

EM 510 Engineering Management Fundamentals (3 cr)

Fundamental principles of engineering management addressing management theory applied to the engineering environment; management processes and techniques; attitudes that facilitate the leadership role of the engineering manager in an engineering organization; team-taught by business and engineering faculty. Prereq: Permission

BUS 513 Leadership and Organizational Behavior (3 cr)

Micro oriented treatment of areas including communication, motivation, group process, conflict, leadership style.

ACCT 582 Enterprise Accounting (3 cr)

Carries no credit toward master's degree in accounting. Both business and non-business students will learn the critical role played by financial statements as entrepreneurs try to launch a new business. The trade-offs of various funding sources and their impacts on financial statements are also explored. Content will be presented in an integrated manner, rather than concept by concept, to emphasize the interrelatedness of forecasts and assumptions regarding revenues, costs, and financing on financial statements and thus, the resulting business model. Additional projects and/or assignments required for graduate credit.

STAT 401 Statistical Analysis (3 cr)

Concepts and methods of statistical research including multiple regression, contingency tables and chi-square, experimental design, analysis of variance, multiple comparisons, and analysis of covariance.
Prereq: Stat 251 or 271 or 301

Quantitative Electives:

You will find courses available through Engineering Outreach.  Remember quantitative electives are 500 level engineering courses containing a focus on quantitative analysis of an engineering subject.

Qualitative Electives:

You will find courses available through Engineering Outreach.  Remember qualitative electives are course that focus on management or process. They tend to be light on analysis and behavior of physical systems. In fact, they tend to apply to all fields. These courses come from business, engineering, math, and statistics. They cover subjects such as quality, project management, six sigma, law, and so forth. Examples are (but not limited to):

  • EM 486 Software Assisted Project Management
  • BUS 456/504 Quality Management
  • BUS 531 Design for Six Sigma
  • BLAW 420 Commercial Law
  • CE 482 Project Engineering
  • Stat 446 Six Sigma Innovation
  • ME 552 High Tech Entrepreneurship
  • ME 577 Design for Manufacture and Assembly

If you are unable to find a quantitative elective in your engineering discipline or a qualitative elective offered in the semester you desire, you may receive permission to bring in a course from another institution.  Please send a course description to Denise Engebrecht to obtain permission before you register the course.
