Bachelor’s Degree Components

The bachelor’s program includes the basic chemistry, physics, mathematics and engineering science courses required by all engineering disciplines at Missouri S&T. These courses are followed by required core Engineering Management courses and students then specialize in focused emphasis areas with 18 hours of course work.

Engineering Management Core

  • Economic Analysis of Engineering Projects
  • Managing Engineering & Technology
  • Engineering Accounting and Financial Management
  • Introduction to Complex System Management
  • Marketing Management
  • Operations and Production Management
  • Project Management
  • Quality
  • General Management Design & Integration
  • Senior Design

As a senior you will take a capstone design course that integrates the technical and managerial skills acquired. Students complete their Bachelor of Science degree requirements by taking the Associate Engineering Manager Certification and a Department Assessment exam prior to graduation.

Emphasis Areas in Engineering Management

Management of Technology focuses on the management aspects of system design, logistics, scheduling, budgeting, information development, legal aspects of technology management, managing people, and decision making for positions in supply chain logistics, project engineering/scheduling, operations management, cost control/estimating, technical marketing/procurement, sales engineering, engineering administration, information systems, and finance economic analysis.

Industrial Engineering focuses on productivity analysis and system optimization for manufacturing and service organizations. Industrial engineering includes a variety of quantitative and qualitative techniques to identify potential improvements in productivity, quality, safety, and other areas. This emphasis area prepares students for positions such as process engineer, project manager, quality engineer, safety engineer, supply chain manager, operations manager and consulting.

General Emphasis Area focus on the convergence of engineering, management, and innovation in high technology environments. A general engineering emphasis allows students to customize their degree program and create a unique engineering emphasis area that focuses on a traditional engineering field or even a unique combination of engineering courses.

Bachelor of Science
Engineering Management

Entering freshmen intending to study Engineering Management are admitted to the Freshman Engineering Program. They may, however, state an Engineering Management preference, which will be used as a consideration for available freshman departmental scholarships. The focus of the Freshman Engineering program is on enhanced advising and career counseling, with the goal of providing to the student the information necessary to make an informed decision regarding the choice of a major.

The Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering Management requires a minimum of 128 credit hours. These requirements are in addition to credit received for algebra, trigonometry, and basic ROTC courses. An average of at least two grade points per credit hour must be attained. At least two grade points per credit hour must also be attained in all courses taken in Engineering Management.

Each student's program of study must contain a minimum of 21 credit hours of course work in general education and must be chosen according to the following rules:

  1. All students are required to take one American history course, one economics course, one humanities course, and ENGLISH 1120. The history course is to be selected from HISTORY 1200, HISTORY 1300, HISTORY 1310, or POL SCI 1200. The economics course may be either ECON 1100 or ECON 1200. The humanities course must be selected from "The Approved List of Humanities and Social Sciences Courses for Engineering Degrees" maintained by the Office of Undergraduate Studies.
  2. Depth requirement. Three credit hours must be taken in humanities or social sciences at the 2000-level or above and must be selected from the approved list. This course must have as a prerequisite one of the humanities or social sciences courses already taken. Foreign language courses numbered 1180 will be considered to satisfy this requirement. Students may receive humanities credit for foreign language courses in their native tongue only if the course is at the 4000-level or above. All courses taken to satisfy the depth requirement must be taken after graduating from high school.
  3. The remaining two courses are to be chosen from the list of approved humanities/social sciences courses and may include one communications course in addition to ENGLISH 1120.
  4. Any specific departmental requirements in the general studies area must be satisfied.
  5. Special topics, special problems and honors seminars are allowed only by petition to and approval by the student's department chair.

The Engineering Management program at Missouri S&T is characterized by its focus on the scientific basics of engineering and its innovative application; indeed, the underlying theme of this educational program is the application of the scientific basics to engineering practice through attention to problems and needs of the public. The necessary interrelations among the various topics, the engineering disciplines, and the other professions as they naturally come together in the solution of real world problems are emphasized as research, analysis, synthesis, and design are presented and discussed through classroom and laboratory instruction.

Free Electives Footnote:

Free electives. Each student is required to take three hours of free electives in consultation with his/her academic advisor. Credits which do not count towards this requirement are deficiency courses (such as algebra and trigonometry), and extra credits in required courses. Any courses outside of engineering and science must be at least three credit hours.
