Course Description

This course serves as an introduction to engineering management. Topics include financial principles, management of innovation, engineering project planning and control, human factors, career planning, patents, and technical strategy. The case study method of instruction in this course emphasizes student participation in class discussion.

This class was also offered in Course 13 (Department of Ocean Engineering) as 13.52. In 2005, ocean engineering subjects became part of Course 2 (Department of Mechanical Engineering), and the 13.52 designation was dropped in lieu of 2.96.
