Students must possess an ABET Accredited Associates degree in Engineering Technology. Students may be admitted to the program, but may take no more than 12 hours of ETM courses without the appropriate Associates degree.
A maximum of 76 hours from a technical college, which includes 31 hours of technical content, may be counted toward degree credit at USC Upstate. The last 31 hours of the ETM program must be from USC Upstate courses. Note that, to graduate with honors, a student must have earned at least 60 credit hours applicable to the degree in residence at the University. Courses taken at other institutions are not considered "in residence." So, students intending to graduate with honors should limit transfer of credits from other institutions to 64 credits, rather than 76 credit hours. See the academic catalog for more information and requirements for graduating with honors.
The ETM program builds on the technical foundation of a number of different Engineering Technology degrees. Examples include the following:
- Architectural Engineering Technology
- Civil Engineering Technology
- Computer Engineering Technology
- Construction Engineering Technology
- Electronics Engineering Technology
- General Engineering Technology
- Geomatics Technology
- Graphics Technology
