Engineering Leadership Development

A. James Clark School of Engineering

The goal of the minor in Engineering Leadership Development is to prepare engineering students for leadership roles in industry and to develop the skill most attractive to employers. The minor will complement the technical skills and knowledge students acquire during their engineering coursework to better prepare them to engage in leadership within industry. Students may earn a minor and a notation on their official transcript by completing coursework which focuses on communication, leadership theory, global awareness, project management, understanding oneself, and working effectively with others.


The minor in Engineering Leadership Development consists of 16 credit hours. A maximum of six credits may also count toward the student's major, and no more than six credits may be taken at an institution other than the University of Maryland, College Park. All courses counted toward the minor must be completed with a "C-" or better. The following courses are required:

  • ENES317: Introduction to Engineering Leadership (3 credits)
  • ENCE320: Engineering Project Management (3 credits)
  • ENES472: International Business Cultures in Engineering and Technology (3 credits)
  • ENES424: Engineering Leadership Capstone Course (3 credits)
  • EDHI338: Intergroup Dialogue (1 credit)
  • Elective: Requires advisor approval (3 credits)

Note: ENES317, ENCE320, and ENES472 must be taken before ENES424.
