SCHOOL OF SYSTEMS AND ENTERPRISES MISSION
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.
BACHELOR OF ENGINEERING IN ENGINEERING MANAGEMENT
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.
BACHELOR OF ENGINEERING IN ENGINEERING MANAGEMENT MISSION AND OBJECTIVES
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).

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), a Masters of Engineering in Systems Engineering (MESE), or a Masters of Science in Software Engineering (MSSwE) 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 357 Elements of Operations Research

Software Engineering is the discipline dedicated to the engineering principles and techniques required for the sound construction of the computer systems of today and tomorrow. As businesses and institutions integrate new technologies to compete in the global environment they require individuals who are cognizant of the latest techniques in computational intelligence and are armed with the skills required to construct new dynamically interacting components.
Software engineers are trained in all aspects of software creation- from specification through analysis and design, to testing, maintenance and evaluation of the product. They are equipped with advanced knowledge in software architecture, project management, technical planning, risk management and software assurance – areas that are essential in implementing and overseeing software-intensive projects of high technical complexity.
