Curriculum (E&M)

In this Section

Core Program
A broadly conceived major, the E&M curriculum is an interdisciplinary education built on Clarkson's strengths in engineering and business. The program presents a balance of course work in the major disciplines of engineering, math and sciences, management, marketing, humanities, and social sciences.

As an E&M student, you will complete the foundation courses that all engineers take, along with the entire foundation of the business curriculum. Specialized tracksminors and a concentration also exist, which allow you to focus within a specific area. When you have completed these curriculum requirements, you will be awarded a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Engineering & Management — a degree that is cutting edge and growing in popularity with a wide range of Fortune 100 companies.

Beginning with the Class of 2017, all students participate in a project-based professional experience such as co-op, internship, directed research, or community project related to the student's professional goals.

Graduation from the Clarkson University School of Business requires an International Experience.  Beginning with the Class of 2017 this will include students from the Engineering & Management Program.
The following is a listing of the courses required to complete the E&M B.S. degree:
