Industry Outlook and Careers (E&M)
Graduates from this program are prepared to work effectively at the interface of management and engineering and to assume increasingly responsible positions throughout their career.
That’s why E&M graduates have such a high placement rate upon graduation and why one in five E&M alumni hold prominent positions, such as president, CEO or partner in a business.
Both large and small companies seek out E&M graduates for their unique ability to solve business problems from an advanced technical perspective. Clarkson E&M graduates are ready to make an immediate impact in the following fields and roles:
- Construction Management
- Contract Administration
- Cost Engineer
Manufacturing & Production
- Industrial and Project Engineer
- Production Supervision
- Project Planning
- Quality Control

Today’s successful companies create working environments that are collaborative, project-based, and dynamic. They require employees who understand technology and are “system thinkers.”
E&M majors bring that broad perspective to every job.
E&M graduates have a high job placement rate even in a down economy.

“The E&M curriculum is truly one of a kind at a university that produces top-level individuals. As a first-year student I was pushed outside my comfort zone into a team-based project, and even as a rising senior I believe my knowledge stretches beyond the industry standards. There were many opportunities to concentrate on what I am passionate about while absorbing a broad understanding of the relationship between engineering and business practices.”
