The Engineering Technology Management (ETM) program prepares technology students to serve a leadership role in technical and/or service organizations.
In support of this mission, the ETM program aims to
- prepare technology graduates who are competent in technical and managerial areas;
- provide quantitative and qualitative skills for problem solving;
- teach students to use modern computer-based systems;
- instill in graduates an understanding of professional, societal, and ethical responsibilities and need for lifelong learning;
- produce graduates who are progressing towards continued professional development;
- produce graduates who are able to work effectively in teams;
- produce graduates who demonstrate good written and oral communication skills.
The ETM program is an interdisciplinary program leading to a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree. There are two options 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 specific program accreditation from an appropriate agency in the near future.
