  • EMGT 6120 Quality Systems
    This course focuses on the concepts of total quality management, including philosophies and frameworks of quality management; incorporating quality into strategic planning; leadership, process measurement and management; continuous quality improvement and ISO 9000. Original writings by major figures in the quality movement, such as Deming, Juran, Taguchi, and others are discussed.
  • EMGT 6200 Information Systems Engineering
    This course introduces students to information systems within and across organizations. Information systems provide a primary source of information for management. Students learn about the phases of design and implementation of information systems, as well as methods for keeping abreast of fast-paced changes in the IT world.
  • EMGT 6210 Database Information Systems
    This course presents methods and procedures for storing and retrieving manufacturing data in large computerized databases. It also covers the entity relationship modeling of database systems using common notation. Topics include database design, normalization, and SQL. Students will build a database using MS Access as a project.
  • EMGT 6010 Engineering Writing
    This course is designed to help you develop the ability to think critically as a professional communicator. Learning to ask appropriate questions will enable you to understand, develop, and produce effective communication using the following elements of thought: purpose, basic concepts, information sources and needs, underlying assumptions, inferences/conclusions, implications/consequences, and points of view.. Significant ethics discussions are included throughout this course.
  • EMGT 6300 Project Management
    This course focuses on the development and utilization of network techniques, such as PERT and CPM, to schedule activities, develop financial budgets, allocate resources, and control progress and costs of practical projects. Students also are introduced to project scheduling software.
  • EMGT 6400 Engineering Law
    This course focuses on the study of those parts of the legal system that relate to engineering. Topics include domestic and international environments of intellectual property policy (including patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets); torts and various sources of personal, facility, products, and enterprise liability; contracts and issues arising from various types of contractual relationships; and aspects of administrative law (dealing with agencies) and employment law.
  • EMGT 6000 Foundations of Engineering Management
    The objective of this course is to teach engineers the management skills they will need to be effective throughout their careers. It introduces the ways in which management principles are applied in the kinds of work students are most likely to encounter. Also included are aspects of globalization, including how culture changes engineering management.
  • EMGT 6620 Data Acquisition and Predictive Analytics
    The objective of this course is to teach students modern methods for database processing and development. Students will gain the necessary knowledge to query existing databases, design and implement databases
  • EMGT 6600 Applied Accounting and Finance for Engineering Management
    Principles and techniques of accounting, finance, performance measures and decision making are examined and applied in the engineering management context. Methods of cost accounting are presented, compared and used. Relationships between cost, volume and profit are illustrated, and related parameters are calculated. Budgets for production, direct labor, manufacturing and other functions are prepared. Performance measures are analyzed and applied. Differential analysis techniques are used to support engineering management decisions. Financial statements and statements of cash flows are examined and interpreted to assess the financial health of engineering organizations.
  • EMGT 6949 Engineering Management Project
    Students are required to work on a project of their choice in this course. Though not mandatory, they are encouraged to select a real-world engineering problem they are facing in their job. Students will report on their project problems, solutions, analyses, results, discussions, and conclusions.
  • Leadership Engineering
    This course will provide information, experiences and skill development to aid the student in creating an inventory of leadership knowledge for lifelong development of effective leadership abilities. Students will accomplish this through selected readings, supplemental videos, interviews of experienced leaders, reflections and discussions to explore, develop, and reinforce leadership development.
