What can a degree in Engineering with a Management Track do for me?

According to the website of the American Society of Engineering Management (ASEM), approximately two-thirds of all engineers will spend a substantial portion of their professional careers as managers. A degree in Engineering Management will provide the best of two worlds as a foundation for an increasingly technology-driven society. UIW will teach students how to create value through engineering and technology, while giving them a sound business and management education. During the senior year of study, students will have the opportunity to apply their skills with a research project that involves the technology and business knowledge acquired through their course of study.

What is Pre-Engineering?

Pre-Engineering is a two-year plan of study that allows the student to lay a groundwork of math, science and computer courses which could then

a) be transferred to a school that offers a four-year bachelor’s degree in a branch of engineering, or b) be used as part of a degree plan at this University in an area such as mathematics, computer science, environmental science, or nutrition science, or c) be the basis for the BS-Engineering Management degree offered at Incarnate Word.

Can I get a BS-E degree in four years?

Yes, it is possible. This is the outline of a four-year, eight semester plan for a BSE with a Management Track.  Many students, however, will want to take courses during the summer, probably some of the UIW core courses, to lighten their course load during the fall and spring semesters.
