About the Author:

Dr. Lucy C. Morse I am an Associate Professor Emerita at the University of Central Florida (UCF).  Before I retired from teaching, I was both the Coordinator for the Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology program, and Director of Engineering Technology at a Distance, a program focused on using advanced learning technologies to deliver engineering technology degrees to students on and off campus.  Currently I teach engineering management as an adjunct for UCF.  I was the first woman to obtain a doctorate in engineering at UCF, receiving a PhD from the Department of Industrial Engineering in 1987.  In the early 90’s I served as a Program Manager at the National Science Foundation in the Engineering Directorate.

 

In 2011 I was delighted and excited to receive the Bernard Sarchet Award in recognition of Lifetime Achievement in Engineering Management Education at the annual ASEE conference. I am a Fellow in the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE), and a Fellow in the American Society for Engineering Management (ASEM), and have served as an examiner for the national Malcolm Baldrige Quality Award and the Florida Sterling Award. My experience in management has come through leadership roles in national and local volunteer organizations before and after I returned to engineering graduate school.  I have lectured on engineering management, quality management and distance learning education throughout the continental U.S. as well as in Spain, Romania, Ukraine, Germany and Antarctica.

 

At present I serve on the Executive Committee of American Society for Engineering Management (ASEM).  I have enjoyed working on the Managing Engineering and Technology text with Dan Babcock and am really excited to be starting this blog.

 

Daniel L. Babcock began his career as a chemical engineer, earning a BS at Penn State and an SM at MIT.  He then served three years as a USAF officer in development testing, three years as a chemist and technical writer for a silicone chemical manufacturer, and three years abstracting progress in solid propellant rocket development on a U.S. government contract.  Next, he spent seven years with North American Rockwell Corporation coordinating development and integration of solid and small liquid propellant rocket motors into the Apollo Command and Service Modules, engine with a leave to complete a Ph.D. in Systems Engineering Management at UCLA in 1970.

 

Dr. Babcock then accepted a position as Associate Professor (later Professor) of Engineering Management at the University of Missouri-Rolla (no Missouri University of Science and Technology).  When assigned the introductory course in engineering management he found many fine textbooks in business management as well as some confined to specific technical areas (managing research, production, or projects), but none that included topics broadly needed in managing technology — dependent departments and companies.  Dr. Babcock began to supplement the assigned management textbook with handouts for his students on areas of his experience, such as project management, quality assurance, and reliability engineering.  He later outlined what he thought a more comprehensive text on Managing Engineering and Technology should include, and began to write one with encouragement from Prentice-Hall.  With publication of the 1st (1991) and 2nd (1996) editions, however, Dr. Babcock retired from teaching.  He has since been pleased to have Dr. Lucy Morse as his co-author to keep the book current and timely through its 3rd, 4th, and (now) 5th editions.

Engineering management faculty have recognized Managing Engineering and Technology as one of the best textbooks in its field. This book is designed to teach engineers, scientists, and other technologists the management skills they will. need to be effective throughout their careers. Topical coverage includes:

  • The nature and application of management principles throughout the technology product/project life cycles.
  • The many dimensions and issues involved with developing an engineering management career, such as getting off to the right start, maintaining technical competence, making the transition to management positions, international implications, ethics, and women/minorities.
  • Traditional management functions of planning, organizing, motivating, and controlling with an emphasis on the management of technology

The third edition has been completely updated with additional information on concurrent engineering, teams, the Internet, information technology, and creativity.
