Undergraduate Curricula in ABET-EAC Engineering Management Programs: With an International TouchAmy K. Zander, Ph.D., P.E.Director, Engineering & ManagementClarkson University, Potsdam, NYAbstractEngineering Management programs are a very small population of undergraduate programs accreditedby the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET, Inc. Internationally there are currently 14undergraduate programs accredited by the EAC in Engineering Management, compared to more than2000 accredited undergraduate engineering programs. While the earliest Engineering Managementprogram was accredited in 1936, seven of the 14 programs were accredited in the last decade and threeof these in the most recent (2010-2011) accreditation cycle. Within this rapidly growing community,there are striking similarities and differences in program curricula. Some Engineering Managementprograms are accredited against more than one program area. This paper compares and contrasts thecurricula in the eight programs that are ABET EAC accredited in the Engineering Management area alonein the United States and internationally, and relates those to the 2010-2011 ABET EngineeringManagement Program Criteria.
