Students must possess an ABET accredited associate's degree
in engineering technology. Students may be admitted to the program, but may
take no more than 12 hours of engineering technology management (ETM) courses without the appropriate associate's
A maximum of 76 hours from a technical college, which includes 31
hours of technical content, may be counted toward degree credit hours at USC Upstate.
The last 31 hours of the ETM program must be from USC Upstate courses.
In order to graduate with honors, a student must earn at least 60 credit
hours applicable to the degree from courses in residence at the University. Courses taken
