Minor in Engineering Management
A common refrain from employers in industry is that engineering graduates have a strong technical education but lack an understanding of management to advance into leadership positions. Developed to address this concern and equip our Drexel engineers with the necessary insights, the Minor in Engineering Management is designed for COE and BMES students looking to accelerate their career path into management after graduation.
The curriculum enhances an engineer’s resume to show understanding and development of skills in:
- Management and Leadership behaviors and decision-making within a technology organization
- Economic Analysis
- Legal Studies
- Systems Engineering and Systems Thinking
