The mission of the Engineering Technology Management (ETM) 2+2 Bachelor’s of Science Program is to prepare students for careers in business and industry by combining technical management and refined leadership with the skills students obtain from their specialized Associate’s Degree in Engineering Technology (ET).

The programme

The ETM program implements this mission through the Program Educational Objectives (PEOs) as part of the ETAC of ABET accreditation process.

The working adult is the target audience of the ETM program. The structure of the ETM program allows working adults to attend full-time or part-time with a mix of course delivery in the evening and via distance learning.

  • The ETM degree program requires students to enroll in related courses from a list of selective electives. Because of this requirement, many ETM students choose to earn a minor in Business Administration.
  • Current technical college ET students interested in the ETM program should make contact immediately with the ETM Program Coordinator to plan the optimum transfer of credits. 


The Engineering Technology Management program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET.
