Requirements and Application Procedures

Applications for the Master’s Degree or Graduate Certificate must be submitted through EngineeringCAS. If you’d like to start immediately, you can take an ETM course as an Undeclared Graduate while you prepare your materials for application.

Admission to the Engineering and Technology Management program and the WSU Graduate School requires having a bachelor’s degree from an accredited program. Exposure to disciplines in engineering or technology through study or employment is also required. One of our strictest requirements is that applicants are working in and have significant industry or engineering experience and math through at least college algebra, although calculus is preferred. If you have a math deficiency, you may wish to consider one of the free online programs or a community college refresher. The application has a fee of $75.
