Department of Engineering Leadership and Society

The mission of the Department of Engineering Leadership and Society is to educate engineers and leaders who are focused on the complex challenges of 21st century society. The department has a strong bias towards the practice of engineering and management, rather than on theoretical studies, and is a strong proponent for the adoption of modern learning approaches that educate students synchronously and asynchronously throughout their careers. The department houses four academic programs: Systems Engineering and Engineering Management, Peace Engineering, Construction Management, and Engineering Technology. There are currently over 200 undergraduate students and 250 full-time and part-time graduate students in our programs. Many of the part-time graduate students work full-time as engineers and construction managers, and serve as conduits between our progams and regional industries.
