BS Engineering Technology Management

Program Mission:

The mission of the Engineering Technology Management (ETM) program at UTC is to provide accessible education in the principles and application of technology management, while preparing students to understand and be productive in the work environment.

Program Educational Objectives:

In support of this mission, graduates of the ETM program will be able to:

  • Demonstrate the necessary understanding of planning, organizing, and problem-solving skills to provide value-added services in technical or management positions;

  • Demonstrate good communication skills and be able to function well in multi-disciplinary teams as leaders; and

  • Appreciate the need for, and to pursue, self-directed professional development opportunities, such as graduate work, trainings, and participation in professional organizations.

Student Outcomes:
