Degree Completion Programs

USC Upstate Greenville Campus supports the following undergraduate day and evening programs:

Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology Management — Evening Program

The Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology Management (ETM) is designed for engineering technology associate’s degree holders who wish to earn a bachelor’s degree. Students enroll in the program if they possess or are near completion of an associate degree in engineering technology. The program is ideal for technicians who desire the management skills necessary to be an effective interface between technicians and upper managers. It uses a comprehensive blend of management, business, economics and communications courses to build a layer of management knowledge and skills on students’ technical foundation. ETM courses include cost analysis, work analysis, systems decision making, quality practices and project management. Industry projects integrated with traditional coursework enable students to apply theory in realistic management situations. The ETM degree will open doors for advancement and give students the ability and confidence to step through those doors. Visit Engineering Technology Management for more information or contact Tim Ellis at to design a customized course plan for full-time or part-time students. 

Bachelor of Arts or Science in Interdisciplinary Studies — Day and Evening Programs

Interdisciplinary Studies provides students the opportunity to broaden their education by developing, in consultation with an advisor, a multi-disciplinary or individualized program of study to meet their educational and career goals. The IDS program allows students to combine course work in two or more disciplines based on personal interest, the desire for self-improvement, career advancement, or preparation for further study. Students with a variety of course work but not enough credits for a traditional degree may find that the IDS program allows them to use much of their earlier course work. The IDS major is available to students at all levels of their academic careers—from the beginning freshman to the returning student who previously earned credits toward a particular major but has developed a new academic focus.
