Engineering Management as an Outreach Degree At the University of Idaho

Parviz F. Rad, David M. Woodall University of Idaho at Idaho Falls


Engineering Management is an emerging field of engineering which focuses on the needs of engineers who make the transition to managerial positions. Such a transition usually occurs after several years of traditional engineering practice. The University of Idaho recently implemented its Master's program in the area of Engineering Management. This advanced degree program sharpens the student's quantitative and personal skills necessary for the engineering manager's position. The program curriculum contains core courses and a suite of required business courses and is delineated in this paper. A distinct feature of this program is that it is available as a video outreach program and hence the student's study plan will not be disrupted with business travel or relocation. Instructor-student interaction is very effective and timely with the use of the web as a means of submitting and returning homework.
