dc.description.abstractThis paper describes and gives an example of the modular approach to curriculum development and implementation for post-graduates who are practicing engineers and scientists in an executive-style engineering management program. The goal of this MS degree program is to enable future engineering managers to make better business decisions. The objective of the Materials module is to understand the complexity of the societal issues that impact upon materials selection. The module challenges the engineering leader to understand the history and practice of materials utilization, and to be prepared to participate in the creation of strategies and tactics for materials resources. Using a global perspective, the class studies how today the broad societal issues of health, safety, energy, conservation and the preservation of the environment are taking an equal position to the traditional motivators, namely, economics, technical and geopolitical influences. The paper details aspects of the difficulty in developing and maintaining a balanced curriculum, one that would be meaningful for a class cohort composed of practicing engineers with diverse undergraduate preparations and lifetime experiences.
