Program Overview

The Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology and Management combines technical courses, with a business minor, quantitative sciences, natural sciences, and general education to prepare graduates for technical, management, and/or applied engineering positions in business and industry. The engineering technology and management program is accredited by the Association of Technology Management and Applied Engineering (for more information see www.atmae.org).

Over 90% of the engineering technology and management courses include lab activities in which students apply the theory they learned in the classroom to “real life” problems and projects. These activities are not simply simulation; they have real outcomes as well as consequences. This activity based, “hands on”, approach to learning provides students technical knowledge as well as continuously improving their problem solving skills.

The engineering technology and management graduate is a technical generalist who is competent in assessing problems and proposing solutions to improve productivity related to product specifications, materials and processes, industrial control and information systems, and operations management.

Admissions Information

Freshman/First-Year Admission

No requirements beyond University admission requirements.

Change of Program Policy

Students who wish to transfer must have earned a C or better in a math course and a science course.Students enrolled at any Ohio University campus who wish to transfer into any program in the Russ College cannot do so if they would be on academic probation after transferring into that major. The probation rules for Russ College are stricter than those for the University as a whole. In order not to be on probation, a student must have a GPA of 2.0 or higher for all courses taken, for all courses taken in the Russ College, and for all courses taken in the intended major. Students must also have successfully completed all required courses in three attempts and have no required course they have attempted twice without success. For some courses, success means a grade of at least a C or C-.

Transfer students who have earned more than 20 semester hours of credit at another accredited collegiate institution may be admitted directly, if they meet the general requirements for transfer students, including a GPA greater than 2.5.

Opportunities Upon Graduation
