Engineering Management Minor
The Vanderbilt University School of Engineering's Engineering Management (EngM) Program is a minor program of study designed to expose engineering students to the concepts and theories of:
- The management of the engineering function,
- The critical elements of technology development and innovation, and
- The implementation of such ideas in manufacturing, engineering, and technology environments.
The EngM program is administered though the division of general engineering.
An EngM minor consists of 15 hours of course work, some of which may be taken as electives associated with the student's major program. Five courses are required: four core courses and the remaining course chosen from a list of electives.
The student must take the following four courses:
- ENGM 2210 Technology Strategy
- ENGM 2440 Applied Behavioral Science
- ENGM 3010 Systems Engineering
- ENGM 3700* Program and Project Management
The student must select one of the following courses:
- ENGM 2160 Engineering Economy
- ENGM 3100 Accounting and Finance for Engineers
- ENGM 3300 Technology Assessment and Forecasting
- ENGM 3350 Organizational Behavior
- ENGM 3600 Technology-Based Entrepreneurship
- ENGM 3650 Operations and Supply Chain Management
- ENGM 4500 Product Development
- CE 4300 Reliability and Risk Case Studies
- ENVE 4305 Enterprise Risk Management
- ES 2900 Engineering and Public Policy
* For students majoring in engineering science, ENGM 3700 is a required course. Students majoring in civil or electrical and computer engineering may substitute CE 4400 or EECE 4950 for ENGM 3700.
