College of Business and Engineering
My UE degree in mechanical engineering instilled in me the ability to isolate the core tenets of a problem and critically think about viable solutions. I remember the dean at the time telling me ‘you may never use the specific material we teach you here, but you will learn how to go about solving any problem you encounter.’ My MBA degree enhanced my undergraduate engineering education with business acumen. Years later, I decided to pursue a PhD in Operations Management as the field resides at the intersection of business and engineering. - Jeff Smith, PhD – UE alumnus, mechanical engineering 1995
