The mission of the Engineering Technology Management (ETM) program at UTC is to provide accessible education in the principles and application of technology management, while preparing students to understand and be productive in the work environment.
In support of this mission, graduates of the ETM program will be able to:
- Apply fundamental principles of planning, organizing, and problem-solving skills in various industries;
- Provide valued services in technical, supervisory, and management positions in both technical and non-technical industries;
- Appreciate the need for, and to pursue, life-long learning opportunities and continuous professional development.
The Program Educational objectives can be found by the general public on the program website www.utc.edu/etem.
The ETM program is an interdisciplinary program leading to a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree. There are two concentrations in the program:
The ETM program provides a means for transfer students with a technology degree from a two-year program (A.A.S.) to move to a four-year B.S. degree in approximately two years.
The ETM program faculty have degrees in various emphasis areas of engineering and management and are committed to delivering a technology curriculum that has strong emphasis on technology, management, and engineering analysis and utilization of modern technical tools.
Credits received by transfer for required courses in engineering technology management require a minimum grade of C. Although equivalents will be awarded for D grades, students must retake the courses.
Degree and Accreditation:
ETM program graduates obtain a B.S. degree. The University is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS). The ETM program will seek accreditation from the Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology (ABET)-TAC under the general criteria in the fall of 2012.
