MS E&TIM Curriculum
Core courses of E&TIM include Managerial and Engineering Economics, Strategy and Management Technology Innovation, a Product or Process innovation project, and Innovation Management in Practice seminars featuring industry speakers. A summer internship project provides a hands-on experience at a firm leveraging technology.
Electives serve two purposes. Technical electives enable students to strengthen their technical education in additional areas. Innovation management electives allow students to deepen their understanding in a variety of aspects of management that distinguish successful innovation, including business contexts and processes, policies, and organizational dynamics.
Technical elective areas include traditional technical disciplines and interdisciplinary choices. The College of Engineering at Carnegie Mellon's Pittsburgh campus includes Departments of Biomedical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Civil & Environmental Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Engineering & Public Policy, Materials Science Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering. Because Carnegie Mellon enjoys broad technical strengths and an interdisciplinary culture, exciting possibilities for technical focus areas in E&TIM may also be found at the intersections between disciplines. E&TIM students may also apply for dual degrees with traditional engineering programs.
Innovation Management electives span a range of courses in three main catergories:
- Industrial R&D and Entrepreneurship,
- International Business and Science, Technology, and Innovation Policy and
- Innovating in the Context of an Organization.
