Through a curriculum that blends engineering and management studies, this program will prepare you for leadership positions in technology-based companies.
You will learn to apply the problem-solving savvy of engineering principles to business practices.
Only graduates of an A.S. in Engineering Management program—or an associate’s degree in a technical field approved by the dean—are eligible to apply. In order to qualify, the degree needs to:
Meet all BSC general studies requirements for an associate’s degree.
Encompass at least 60 credit hours.
Include successful completion of at least one calculus, one statistics, and one Computer Aided Drafting course.
In order to apply for the B.S. in Engineering Management, all you need to do is select the Engineering Management major when you apply to Bluefield State College.
Your advisor will work with you throughout your academic journey to make sure you're on track to earn your degree. Receiving the B.S. in Engineering Management requires completing the following courses:
In semesters one through four, you will complete the A.S. degree in Engineering Technology or an A.S. degree in a technical field approved by the dean of the School of Engineering Technology and Computer Science.
The degree must contain at least 60 hours and meet all Bluefield State College general studies requirements for an associate degree and include successful completion of at least one calculus, one statistics, and one Computer Aided Drafting course.
Then, complete the following courses in semesters five through eight.
After receiving your B.S. in Engineering Management degree, you may visit the West Virginia Board of Registration for Professional Engineers to take the required exam and meet any service requirements in order to be registered as a professional engineer.
Program Educational Objectives
