An Online Master of Science Program in Engineering TechnologyThis paper describes a new Master of Science in Engineering Technology program at ******University. The goal of the program is to develop advanced level practitioners in industry whoare interested in developing marketable skills to meet evolving workforce demands, seekingprofessional development, expanding opportunities for professional advancement, or pursuing amanagerial position. To support this goal, the emphasis is on the applied aspects of thetechnological spectrum, such as product improvement, industrial practices, and engineeringtechnology operation. The curriculum is multidisciplinary, and includes core courses in suchareas as modern materials, rapid prototyping, programmable devices and systems, modernenergy conversion technologies, and microfabrication. In addition to these core courses, electivesare offered in areas, such as reliability engineering, lean manufacturing principles, greenmanufacturing, and project management. The program is designed to be extremely flexible; itpermits the student to select a combination of courses relevant to individual career goals intechnology or to provide the foundation for further advanced study. Both a thesis and a non-thesis (applied project) option are available. The program is currently available entirely onlineand several of the courses employ web-based laboratory exercises. Future plans includeproviding face-to-face and real-time videoconferencing delivery modes.
