Minors and Concentration (E&M)

In this Section

The E&M curriculum is designed to give a broad overview of the business, engineering, and technical knowledge required to enter a wide variety of careers in business and engineering management. If you want to sharpen your focus on a particular field, talk to your academic advisor about pursuing a minor, concentration or E&M Track.  (Note: Because of the sequencing of courses for a minor, concentration or track in addition to the E&M major, we encourage students to work with their advisor beginning in their sophomore year.)

Identified and approved by a vote of the faculty, such minors provide students with another area of specialization outside their major.  Minors require 15 or more credit hours of specified coursework.  Completion of an approved minor is indicated on a student's transcript.  See the Clarkson Catalog for a complete listing of minors available.

Though almost all minors at Clarkson are available, several minors are more commonly earned by E&M students. 

  • Math Minor
  • Quality-Based Project Management Minor
  • Sustainable Energy Systems Engineering Minor

Note that E&M students may not minor in Business or Engineering Science.

A concentration requires 15 or more credit hours of specified coursework within or closely related to a major. Completion of an approved concentration is indicated on a student's transcript. See the Clarkson Catalog for a complete listing of concentrations available. Global Supply Chain Management is the concentration currently available to E&M students. 

Global Supply Chain Management (Qualifies as a CUSB Concentration)
The principles behind supply chain management focus on developing seamless flows of raw materials, products/services, information, and financial capital. The supply chain starts at the initial design process and includes raw material sourcing, logistics and continues through the delivery of that product or service to the end customer, with a goal of creating customer satisfaction at optimal cost.


Students must take these classes:

  • EM 341  Global Sourcing & Supply Chain Design
  • EM 381  Logistics Management
  • IS 428   Information Systems for Supply Chain Management

Choose two of the following:

  • EM 451  Quality Management & Lean Enterprise
  • OS 466  Negotiations & Relationship Management
  • EM 361  Supply Chain Environmental Management
