Engineering management minor

Engineering management minor

Engineering management is a new minor that has been launched by the School of Computing, Informatics, and Decision Systems Engineering.

Program Description:

The program in engineering management is designed to provide the graduate with skills for effective management and leadership of engineering-driven enterprises. The curriculum provides a breadth of engineering science and design with depth in one specific area suitable for practice. This knowledge is augmented with an understanding of business practices, organizational behavior and management skills to enable the graduate to succeed in the management of a scientific or engineering enterprise. Topics such as project and resource management, financial engineering, risk management, configuration management, service plans, product liability, entrepreneurship and operations management are covered, in addition to product design and process development.

Program expectations

Upon completion of the minor students will have:

  1. An understanding of the role of engineering management, how the engineering function interacts with other functional areas (such as manufacturing, research and service organizations), and the critical functions of engineering management (including financial, legal, personnel administration, technology assessment and project management),
  2. The ability to perform a financial and feasibility analysis of engineering projects,
  3. A understanding of the impact of humans on organizations and the corresponding management/leadership/entrepreneurial techniques, and
  4. Knowledge of the available techniques and tools used to guide planning and control of technical engineering activities

Program requirements

The program of study for a minor in Engineering Management requires a minimum of 18 credit hours.  (Please note that Industrial Engineering and Engineering Management majors will NOT be eligible for the minor).  Prior to enrolling in the minor students must have completed MAT 265 and MAT 266 (or an equivalent calculus sequence) with a grade of C or better in each.

The minor requires complete of four core courses (12 credits) and two elective courses (6 credits).  All courses must be passed with a C or better.  At least 12 units must be completed in residence at ASU or through ASU Online.

Limitations may exist between double-counting courses for both the major and the minor. Students should review DARS for verification.

**Please note that many of these courses have additional prerequisites that students will need to complete.

The required core courses:

            IEE 220: Business/Industrial Engineering or IEE 380 (Students cannot double count either course between their major and minor.)

            IEE 300: Economic Analysis for Engineers

            IEE 458: Project Management (Spring only in person offering) OR CEE 481*

            IEE 431 Engineering Administration (Fall only in person offering)

*CEE 481 may not be used for both the Civil Engineering degree (major) and the Engineering Management minor

The two elective courses must be selected from the following list:

            IEE 369: Work Analysis and Design (Spring only in person offering)

            IEE 376: Operations Research Deterministic Techniques/Applications
