Voiland College of Engineering and Architecture Engineering and Technology Management


Requirements and Application Procedures

Admission to the Engineering and Technology Management program and the WSU Graduate School requires having a bachelor’s degree from an accredited program. For the ETM 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.
