Program Information

The Master of Science in Engineering and Technology Management (MS-ETM) degree program is designed for working professionals. Graduate students take flexible, part time, online courses over five semesters finishing the MS-ETM degree in as few as 20 months. Students participate in class on their own schedules fitting around work and personal life. Collaborative projects are integrated into the program requirements and course work. Participants in the MS-ETM program work on various collaborative projects throughout the program and complete a graduate project rather than a theoretical or research-based thesis often associated with a Master of Science. While some theory and research are part of any graduate degree, UVU’s MS-ETM program focuses on real-world applications providing students a rigorous, relevant, and practical foundation for their technical management careers.
