Manufacturing Management curriculum
Manufacturing management is an area of concentration within the Industrial Management major. Different from a major, a concentration lets you focus on an area of special interest within Industrial Management. You can complete a concentration in more than one area and within any of our majors. For example, you can earn a Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial Management with a concentration in Manufacturing Management.
Choosing a concentration doesn't mean you will take additional classes. Your major (Industrial Management) requires you to successfully complete 124 credit hours. You will fill some of those hours with electives, or classes that are not required for your major. A concentration takes the place of some of these electives. Industrial Management majors can choose concentrations in Economics, Management Information Systems (MIS), Quantitative Methods, or Operations.
In Manufacturing Management, your courses focus on strategy, planning, control systems, technology, and labor relations. You can also choose more than one concentration. Some classes even count toward two concentrations. Each concentration requires about 12 credit hours.
Talk with your advisor about your career plans. They can help you decide which major and concentration(s) are right for you. They can also help you find opportunities for leadership and growth through clubs, organizations, or study abroad programs.
