The mission of the Department of Engineering Management and Systems Engineering is to deliver an integrated program of research, teaching, and public service to the technology community. The department develops creative leadership to bridge dynamic, complex technologies, and societal needs. This includes delivering instruction in the management of technology and in systems engineering, operations research, and allied fields to undergraduate and graduate students who are preparing to assume leadership roles as technology professionals. The department's programs provide an understanding of the managerial role, analysis of the diverse functions of technology-based organizations, and instruction in modern management and mathematical analysis and modeling tools as they apply to formulating and executing decisions in engineering and scientific organizations. In addition, research programs feature the study of the management of technology; fundamental and applied research in systems engineering and operations, with a particularly strong interest in stochastic analysis and system optimization; sponsorship from government, industry, and the technology community; and a strong presence in refereed professional journals and leadership in professional societies.
