Today, intense competition is forcing companies to find new ways to deliver innovative products and services to market faster and cheaper. As a result, the artificial barriers that have historically separated engineering and business are disappearing as companies develop cross-functional teams composed of engineering and management personnel.
Scholars in Engineering and Management (SEAM) is designed to complement a student’s chosen business or engineering major as well as provide an exceptional pool of unique talent to our corporate champions. Undergraduate business and engineering students work together in cross-functional teams and progress through an integrated curriculum that features specially designed courses.
