SSE Undergraduate Programs

Stevens has a 140 year history of leading innovation in engineering, science and technology. One of the first universities in the world to offer an engineering management program, today, Stevens continues to advance the discipline of Engineering Management for the 21st century.

The Stevens Engineering Management program prepares students to become decision makers that are able to engineer solutions for complex management problems.  Upon graduation, students are able to assume professional positions of increasing responsibility across a broad range of industries, such as:  healthcare, technology, business, finance, manufacturing, and information systems.


The Bachelor of Engineering in Engineering Management is offered in the School of Systems and Enterprises (SSE) at Stevens Institute of Technology. The mission of SSE is to provide interdisciplinary and trans-disciplinary education and research rooted in systems thinking. We focus on applying a "systems approach" to better understand the nature of problems and opportunities, and to conceive novel concepts and solutions that achieve breakthrough results across a wide range of domains, including defense, homeland security, cybersecurity, intelligence, nuclear weapons, communications, space, infrastructure, finance, and business solutions. While maintaining an emphasis on technical systems, we pay particular attention to the interplay between these systems and the human enterprises that design and develop them, operate and use them, and sustain and maintain them.


Engineering Management (EM) is a rapidly expanding field that integrates engineering, technology, management, systems, and business. High-technology companies in the telecommunications, financial services, manufacturing, pharmaceutical, consulting, information technology and other industries utilize the concepts and tools of EM such as project management, quality management, engineering economics, modeling and simulation, systems engineering and integration, and statistical tools. These technology-based companies recruit EM graduates for their expertise in these tools and techniques and to fill a critical need of integrating engineering and business operations.

The EM program combines a strong engineering core with training in accounting, cost analysis, managerial economics, quality management, project management, production and technology management, systems engineering, and engineering design. The course selection offered by this major exemplifies the Stevens interdisciplinary approach to developing strong problem-solving skills. The program prepares students for careers that involve the complex interplay of technology, people, economics, information, and organizations. The program also provides the skills and knowledge needed to enable students to work effectively at the interface between engineering and management and to assume professional positions of increasing responsibility in management or as key systems integrators. Concentrations are available in Systems Engineering and Financial Engineering.


The mission of the Bachelor of Engineering in Engineering Management (BEEM) Program is to provide an education based on a strong engineering  core, complemented by studies in business, technology, systems, and  management, to prepare the graduate to work at the interface between technology/engineering and management, and to be able to assume positions  of increasing technical and managerial responsibility. The objectives of the EM program can be summarized as follows:

  • EM graduates have a strong general engineering foundation and are able  to use modern technological tools while working on complex multidisciplinary problems.
  • EM graduates will have assumed leadership positions in their chosen areas of work using knowledge gained from their engineering management education.
  • EM graduates effectively work in teams on projects to solve real world problems. This effort can involve information research, the use of project management tools and techniques, and the economic justification of the solution that is effectively communicated in a written or oral project report/business proposal that is presented to the client.
  • EM graduates possess the ethics, knowledge, skills, and attributes to define, design, develop, and manage resources, processes, and complex systems needed to work in a multidisciplinary team environment.
  • EM graduates apply the management tasks of organizing, staffing, planning, financing, and the human element and have the tools to continue sustained intellectual growth in the corporate or academic world.

The EM Program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET).

Minor in Engineering Management

EM 275 : Project Management
EM 224 : 
Informatics and Software Development
EM 301 : Accounting & Business Analysis
EM 360 : Total Quality Management

EM Minors typically take the following courses as part of the Engineering Curriculum:
Required Engineering Core

E 355 : Engineering Economics
E 243 : Probability and Statistics for Engineers
TG 421 : Entrepreneurial Analysis of Engineering Design

Required Humanities Core

BT 243 : Macroeconomics
BT 244 : Microeconomics

Students wishing to pursue an EM minor can use any three of the EM 275, 224, 301, or 360 courses to satisfy the requirements for the three general electives. Thus, an EM minor requires a two-course overload.

4 + 1 Program

The SSE offers a unique four plus one program designed for exceptional Stevens undergraduate engineering and science students who wish to jointly pursue either a Masters of Engineering in Engineering Management (MEEM) or a Masters of Engineering in Systems Engineering (MESE) concurrently with their undergraduate degree. Admission to the program is by application only and is based on a superior academic record, relevant industry experience as a coop or intern, and demonstrated systems perspective.

Systems Engineering Minor

The Systems Engineering Minor is open to engineering students enrolled in an engineering major other than Engineering Management. (Non-engineering majors are not eligible for the SE Minor.)

Entry to the minor is by application only. Students who wish to apply must do so in writing and must possess a cumulative GPA of at least 3.3 at the time of application and have had at least one coop assignment or one relevant summer internship approved by the SE Minor advisor. The minor requires six courses, two of which must be in addition to those required to complete a student's major degree program (i.e. the minor requires a two course overload.)  Required courses for the minor are as follows:

  • EM 275 Program Management
  • EM 385 Innovative System Design
  • EM 457 Elements of Operations Research
  • EM 585 Introduction to System Architecture and Design
  • HPL 455 Ethical Issues in Science and Technology (which may be taken as a humanities elective)
  • One approved course from the major department as specified below.

Students in the Systems Engineering Minor are also required to complete an interdisciplinary Senior Design Project, with their Minor Advisor serving as a co-advisor for the project.

Approved Courses from the Major Department for the SE Minor

(These courses may also satisfy requirements within the major department. Some may have prerequisites, which must be taken within the requirements for the major or as additional overload and do not satisfy any SE Minor requirements.
