The questions of do and should universities provide management education for undergraduate engineers are addressed. Then, the approach to management education that is being used at the State University of New York at Buffalo is described. This approach consists of a senior-level elective engineering course. The central theme of the course which unifies the many topics of discussion is the preparation and presentation of a proposal. The course is described in sufficient detail so that the reader can identify the various elements of management education that are woven into the material presented to students.
