Engineering Management Major, B. S.


The four-year Bachelor of Science degree program in Engineering Management (EGM) prepares students for eventual leadership responsibilities in technological environments. Traditional paths for EGM graduates include project management, project engineering, process management, new product development, manufacturing management, new product development processes, quality control, and reliability analysis.

The EGM program integrates the engineering disciplines of electrical and mechanical engineering with business. Flexibility exists for the student to develop concentrations in Information Systems or Entrepreneurship, for example. This program is attractive to companies seeking graduates who are well-rooted in engineering fundamentals, yet who are broadly interested in technology, competitive markets, and business development. Wilkes University does not maintain professional accreditation for the Engineering Management degree.

The Master of Science degree in Engineering Management (MSEGM) is also available. This degree program is described in the Graduate Bulletin.
