Engineering Technology and Management (ETM) students learn how things work, how they’re made, and how to make them better. Our graduates are problem solvers, able to identify an opportunity for improvement and make it happen. These improvements may be in the areas of efficiency, productivity, production flow, product / process quality, cost reduction, or safety.
Our bachelor’s degree in ETM will prepare you for technical and management positions as a productivity improver, usually in manufacturing. At least half of all class time is made up of hands-on application lab activities, and you’ll also earn a minor in business to make you a valuable member of your team and give you a solid foundation for advancement. Typical starting job titles include manufacturing engineer, quality engineer, project engineer, applications/sales engineer and production manager.
Our bachelor’s degree completion program in technical operations management, which is offered online, gives students with an associate’s degree the opportunity to receive a B.S. while continuing to work or caring for your family. You’ll take core courses, a range of ETM courses, and business courses to earn a minor in business administration.
Many of our graduates advance into corporate positions such as plant managers, department and division managers, and corporate leaders.
