Engineering Technology Management

The Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology Management is designed for students who earned an associate's degree in Engineering Technology. This unique 2+2 program leverages partnerships between USC Upstate and technical colleges to allow Engineering Technology degree holders to complete their bachelor's degree at USC Upstate by adding management skills to their technical degree.

The mission of the Engineering Technology Management 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.

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

The working adult is the target audience of the program. The structure of the 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 degree program requires students to enroll in related courses from a list of selective electives. Because of this requirement, many students choose to earn a minor in Business Administration.

  • Current technical college students interested in the program should make contact immediately with the Engineering Technology Program Coordinator to plan the optimum transfer of credits.
