Engineering Management: Practical Experience
The engineering management program at The University of Scranton is home to a unique group of faculty and students who continue to push the limits of the engineering and business. With constant exchange and collaboration, the engineering management program stays at the forefront of exciting research and experimentation, while building a breadth of experience in business and economics.
Students also secure engineering-focused internships and more general internships that build business savvy. These kinds of experiences give our students the chance to explore their career interests in the field and find great jobs once they graduate.
"I am in charge of reviewing an entire team to make sure everything going into the new learning program is working perfectly to then publish it for the workers of this company to use. I get to communicate with people all over the world and I get to be a part of the management of important projects."

During his time here, Dan Ortiz '16, an engineering management major, obtained an engineering internship with Buro Happold, an international consulting engineering firm in New York City.
"I did quite a bit of work calculating device loads and circuiting the devices in the buildings. A job opportunity such as this allowed me to learn how to stay organized and calm while working on live project deadline schedules."
