The discipline of Engineering Management was created on the campus of the University of Missouri – Rolla (now Missouri University of Science & Technology) in the 1960’s by Professor Bernard Sarchet.

His forward-thinking mindset has permeated the Department of Engineering Management ever since. It informs and inspires the Academy of Engineering Management, established to honor up to 1% of its accomplished graduates, but also designed to draw on the character and talents of its members to make a difference – for the university, the department, the faculty, the students, and the discipline.
