Master of Science in Engineering and Technology Management, M.S.

Requirements

The Engineering and Technology Management (ETM) program prepares engineering and technological professionals to make process-, product-, and project-oriented strategic and operational decisions and become leaders in the management of technology by providing the link between engineering, science, and management. It helps companies, research organizations, and governments to plan, develop, and implement technologies by specifically addressing real needs identified by industry leaders. Effective planning, selection, implementation, and management of technology, and the teams involved, is essential to the success of any business in today’s complex and time-critical global markets. Students learn to apply proven evaluation concepts and implementation strategies to fast moving, technical management decisions that make the difference in both career and business success. Courses provide practicing engineers and managers of technical teams or projects with the knowledge, tools, and skills to manage projects, operations, organizations, and people. The program includes product and project management, engineering management, quality and safety management, and statistical analysis to enable the graduate to be more effective in technical managerial and leadership roles in a business environment. The program is specifically tailored for professionals who want to advance their careers while still working full time. The entire program is available through distance learning as well as face to face and involves 30 credit hours of course work
