The Doctor of Engineering with a major in Engineering Management is designed to provide students with preparation to meet doctoral standards in an applied science or engineering practice. Applied science as a focus for the doctoral degree refers to the study of advanced theory and its application to a practical problem in order to test and verify performance limitations.
The degree requires a high level of expertise in the theoretical aspects of relevant scientific principles and experience with details of the implementation of theory on realistic problems. Engineering practice as a focus for the degree is the study of different aspects that play a role in the transfer of technology, from its inception in research to the intended engineering environment, as well as relevant economic issues.
A course may not be counted toward more than one category. The minor requirements may be satisfied by transfer credit.
