Run the Circuit. Literally.
Students in Wilkes' Engineering Management major have an ideal opportunity to blend interests in technology with management, strategy and entrepreneurship. The program is well suited for students with interests such as project management, proposal development, and intellectual property management.
Wilkes recognizes that knowledge of concepts is only as good as
the ability to physically apply them in a hands-on environment -- and besides, it's what engineers like to do!
In our Mechatronics lab,
students interface the electrical and mechanical world commencing in the sophomore year, learning how to automate laboratory testing and data collection.
In our MEMS (Micro-ElectroMechanical Systems) and Thin Films labs,
you can design, build and test a transistor or transducer as an undergraduate! (You can't do this as an undergraduate elsewhere -- just ask around.)
In our Fluid Mechanics lab,
design a wing and test it in a wind tunnel.
Our Machine Shop
has a full complement of tolling and welding facilities for students to use in building the projects they design for class or for co-curricular activities like the Mini-Baja competition.
In our Digital Design lab,
build and demonstrate a locally networked computer from the ground up, starting with wires and chips based on Motorola architecture.
In our Communications lab,
design, build and test radio frequency transmitters, receivers and antennae.
Engineering Management (EgM) graduates work on a wide range
of products and projects that include analysis, design, prototyping, manufacturing, testing, troubleshooting, and systems operations.
Our engineering faculty are active teachers who work closely
with students in classrooms and laboratories; labs are not taught by graduate student teaching assistants. The program is ideal for combining with a second major, science- or non-science-related.
