Engineering with Management at a glance

Students in TR038 pursue an accredited engineering degree. Several of the courses are shared with the larger engineering class, MSISS and Business students but the vast majority are unique to TR038.

Junior Freshman (1st yr)

Senior Freshman (2nd yr)

Junior Sophister (3rd yr)

4th and 5th years

A foundation year that will introduce you to many of the basic concepts in Engineering with management. Development of themes in engineering and management introduced in the first year. Integrates the professional degree in Engineering with Management science Final integration of the professional degrees (B.Sc. or MAI) in Engineering with Management.
Project Work:
Individual and group projects on designing new product concepts and experimental methods.
Project Work:
Design projects introducing standards in drawing and design using computer-aided engineering software tools. Group and independent research projects in materials.
Project Work:
Individual and group design projects integrating manufacturing, business, and human factors.
Project Work:
Substantial engineering project emphasising the integration of technical and business solutions. The 4th year project in the case of the MAI will be a group design and build exercise. The final year project in both cases will be a substantial project – with the MAI project accounting for approximately 50% of the 5th year and having a strong research focus, and the BSc final year project accounting for 25% of the final year.
