Business Know-How Combined With Engineering and Technology
Today's global marketplace requires individuals skilled in the integration of technology, engineering and business management. Clarkson University's Bachelor of Science in Engineering & Management is dually accredited by ABET as an engineering degree and by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACAB) as a business degree. Our unique curriculum combines solid business know-how with technical problem-solving skills in engineering and technology.
As organizations rethink technical and managerial roles, you'll qualify for a wide range of flexible career paths centered on leadership and technology. Among the alumni of the Engineering & Management program, one in three is already a CEO, senior executive or owner of a company.
Why Major in Engineering & Management at Clarkson?
Our interdisciplinary program, offered jointly by the Reh School of Business and the Coulter School of Engineering, trains you to translate the language of engineering and technology into the world of business and industry. Our graduates are recognized as leaders with the ability to initiate new ideas and facilitate change.
You'll have the opportunity to learn from our faculty experts, like Professor John Milne, with more than 25 years of industry experience at IBM as a Master Inventor, who not only welcomes undergraduates to work on his research projects but also encourages students to become inventors. In fact, several dozen of his students have filed provisional U.S. patent applications.
Our curriculum stresses experiential learning. Many of our courses integrate open-ended problems with hands-on projects, including our first-year E&M courses, Team-Based Design & Innovation and Technological Entrepreneurship, as well as the culminating senior design experiences. Students begin solving real-world problems on their very first day at Clarkson!
