Why study Engineering and Technology Management online at OSU?

OSU's Master of Science in Engineering and Technology Management (MSETM) is a rigorous degree program designed specifically for engineers and scientists who are interested in accelerating their management careers.  Managing today's global organizations requires a complex set of knowledge and skills.  Effective planning, selection, implementation and management of technology, and the teams involved, is essential to the success of any business in today's time-critical, global markets.  The OSU-MSETM program specifically addresses the real needs identified by industry leaders.


Online learning through the College of Engineering, Architecture and Technology (CEAT) provides a flexible alternative to traditional on-campus courses as a convenient way to earn your degree whenever your career or other life commitments prevent you from taking classes on campus in a traditional setting.


Online students utilize Canvas, OSU's online learning portal to watch lectures, turn in assignments and communicate with classmates and professors.  


Courses taught online are of identical quality and instruction as those taught in traditional classrooms. CEAT Online Learning and the ETM faculty are here to help you succeed!
