This paper focuses on how to engage students in an online environment. The Trifecta of Engagement framework is introduced. In order for students to be fully engaged in a course, they need to be engaged with (1) their course content, (2) their peers, and (3) their instructor. The author shares the experiences in teaching an online Engineering Management Course in this paper. The student-to-content engagement , student-to-student engagement, and student-to-instructor engagement are highly strengthened through a series of well-designed course activities. The end of course student assessment shows that students demonstrated an apparent increase in engagement and enthusiasm toward the subject matter. Although lacks of the face-to-face communication, the online course with Trifecta of Engagement framework applied prevails over the same course taught onsite in all of the assessment questions.
