For senior and first-year graduate courses in technology and engineering including aerospace, biomedical, chemical, computer, electrical, mechanical, industrial, and systems engineering.
This easy-to read-text covers a wide range of relevant topics affecting the future roles of engineering managers, contains over 80 examples and 120 chapter-end questions, articulates a forward-looking globally orientated perspective, and emphasizes a six-dimensional challenge for engineers in the new millennium. The book is organized in three parts: Part I reviews the basic functions of engineering management; Part II provides backgrounds in cost accounting, financial analysis, financial management and marketing management; and Part III readies the student for exercising leadership in managing technologies through discussions related to engineers as managers/leaders, ethics, web-based tools, globalization and engineering management in the decades to come.

"The topic of the proposed book is interesting and I foresee its wide use as a textbook by numerous engineering programs. I do not recall seeing any other book that would compete with the proposed book. In fact, we have not been able to identify a suitable textbook for years. I like the writing style and the topical coverage. The coverage is well balanced. The author is well established in the area covered in the book. Examples are thoughtful." — Andrew Kusiak, University of Iowa
"It is my experience that those managers hailing from an engineering background have a higher failure rate in management than any other functional area. However, the demand for such will be increasing in the years ahead. I believe this text does a great job of clarifying this issue and the reasons for said failure, while simultaneously pointing out steps to guide the engineer for successful transition to management. Therefore, I applaud the author's effort." — Donald R. McNeeley, Northwestern University
"The author uses a lot of examples, mentions actual companies, etc. This is a big plus." — Paul R. McCright, University of South Florida
"The writing style is a definite strength ...Chang's book is very clear, easy to read, and easy to follow ...The book manages to very effectively cover, in a comprehensive manner, the multitude of concepts relevant to the engineering major." — Julie Dziekan, University of Michigan - Dearborn
"This is a well researched, book which appears to be aimed at covering the totality of Engineering Management in the new millennium...there are some very good examples to explain what is meant by the preceding concepts." — Will Lannes, University of New Orleans
"Writing style is very important ...the clarity and flow of the book are good...the book's strength is that it covers most of the basic topics in a single volume." — Hojjat Adeli, Lichtenstein Professor, The Ohio State University
"I am quite enthusiastic about this text and think it is better than those intro books now out there, especially with his new chapters at the end. His use of examples is very good." — Charles Elliott, Arizona State UniversityFrom the Back Cover:
Engineering Management: Challenges in the Near Millennium prepares engineers to fulfill their managerial responsibilities, acquire useful business perspectives, and take on the much needed leadership roles to meet the new challenges in the decades ahead. These challenges will include satisfying customer demand with faster, cheaper and better products and services, managing an increasingly diversified workplace, creating and managing global supply chains, applying web-based management/engineering techniques to develop and sustain competitive advantages, and leading in creativity and innovation by transforming emerging technologies into business success.
