The Industrial Engineering Management major is offered in cooperation with the Business Department and combines engineering physics with business administration. Because of the broad educational requirements of this degree, engineering accreditation is not appropriate for this program by the Engineering Commission of ABET, 111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202-4012, telephone: (410) 347-7700. Our Industrial Engineering Management program is designed to prepare graduates who will (1) develop successful careers relating to the management, design, development and/or implementation of highly efficient complex industry systems; (2) meet the demands and challenges of the rapidly changing world and the global marketplace, researching and developing novel technologies to solve the problems and address market forces in industry; (3) continue to develop their technical and professional skills throughout their careers; (4) display unwavering high ethical standards; and (5) contribute to the needs of and in other ways enhance their local communities and the world at large.

Industrial Engineering Management majors may substitute PHY 200  for one of their Natural and Physical Science Core courses. PH 275  is approved to satisfy Humanities Core. Students may take up to 19 credits in up to three semesters at Elizabethtown without paying a credit overload fee. Engineering and Physics students must earn a C- or better in ALL prerequisite Engineering and Physics courses to continue in the major.
