WSU’s Engineering and Technology Management ranks among nation’s best.

The Voiland College of Engineering and Architecture’s online engineering program is once again ranked among the best online graduate programs in the nation. With a nine point improvement compared to last year,  it is now among the top 30 programs of choice for those who want to earn an advanced degree and further their careers. WSU’s Master of Engineering and Technology Management (METM) program, established in 1982, serves technical professionals and engineers from around the globe who want to learn how to more effectively manage projects, people, and technology for better results, while still maintaining a full-time job. WSU’s online engineering offerings also include a professional science Master’s degree in electrical power engineering and a new Master’s degree in software engineering. The programs aim to address high industry demand and the shortage of trained engineers. Read more on WSU News.

ETM director spearheads new smart city project

Washington State University has joined with six private and public partners on a formal agreement to develop Spokane’s University District into a smart city living laboratory.

“We’re excited to be part of this group that is leading smart city innovations for healthier people, safer neighborhoods, smarter infrastructure and a more sustainable environment,” said Kim Zentz, director of WSU’s Engineering and Technology Management program, who is leading the project.

The group, which also includes Avista, the City of Spokane, Itron, McKinstry and the University District Development Association, has signed a memorandum of understanding. The partners will align efforts to create a living laboratory for the design of cities of the future in the 770-acre University District, which is located north of I-90 and east of Division Street adjacent to Spokane’s downtown core.
