MEM Portable Media Course List

These courses do not have prerequisites for enrollment other than the program prerequisite of basic calculus, differential equations, and probability and statistics which is satisfied by completion of BRES (Bettis Reactor Engineering School) or ONPS/Prototype.

All three-credit courses may be completed in any sequence. ENMA 605 must be taken in the final semester.

Available portable media-delivered MEM courses include these courses that are required for all MEM graduates:

Introduction to the monetary aspects of engineering projects, including accounting principles; financial reports and analysis; capital budgeting; cost estimation and control, inventory management; depreciation; investment decisions.

Introduction to optimization methods and deterministic models for decision making, linear, integer and non-linear programming; transportation, assignment, and inventory models; network techniques; sensitivity analysis.

Design, evaluation, control, and organization of technical projects; scheduling, budgeting, planning, and monitoring practices; software tools; project information systems; proposal preparation; strategic issues; marketing of technology.

Management systems for distribution, materials handling, inventory control, transportation planning and facilities location and analysis. Special emphasis on logistic information systems and the development of logistics strategy. Includes case studies.

Quality Deming's way. On-line quality engineering, scientific sampling, control charts, acceptance sampling; the quality cost concept and economic aspects of quality decisions. Emphasis on statistical process control.

ENMA 715: Systems Analysis (3 credits).  Provides an understanding of the interdisciplinary aspects of the systems development, operation, and support. Focuses on application of scientific and engineering efforts to transform an operational need into a defined system configuration through the interactive process of design, test and evaluation.


ENMA 724: Risk Analysis (3 credits).  Principles and applications of risk analysis in the context of systems engineering and management.

Assesses students understanding and assimilation of key concepts presented throughout the curriculum. Final course in program; may be taken concurrently with another course in the final semester. Required for graduation. May not be taken out of sequence.

For pre-approved MEM candidates who are not graduates of BRES or NPS-O/Prototype, these additional courses are available asynchronously to complete the 31 required credit hours for graduation:

Provides a foundation in the fundamental theories and practices of human personality and behavior, interpersonal and organizational dynamics and leadership.

Principles and applications of risk analysis in the context of systems engineering and management.

Introduction to the theory and practice of reliability engineering, maintainability and availability from an interdisciplinary perspective, emphasizing concepts, models and practical applications.

Systematic approach to basic principles of design, economics and management of critical infrastructure systems, including issues of risk, vulnerability and risk governance.
