Master of Science in ETM Curriculum (MSETM)

The MSETM is a 32 credit hour program that permits students to build a strong degree that directly prepares them for the future. Coursework is divided into two categories: Required and Elective. Depending on your location and employment status you can choose one of two tracks: Professional Online or Full-time On-Campus


The Required courses include an introductory course (1 hour), a decision analysis course (3 hours) and the capstone series (4 hours). Our introductory course, ETM 5111, offered every spring and fall semester, should be taken immediately after the student is admitted to the program. The decision analysis course, ETM 5143, will be critical in preparing the student for the final ETM Capstone and can be taken any time prior to ETM 5133. The Capstone series for online students, ETM 5511 and ETM 5133, are taken sequentially. Ideally, a student would enroll in ETM 5511 near the midpoint of the program. This preparation course will assist the student in defining a proper project for the Capstone. The ETM program culminates in the delivery of the final Capstone project in ETM 5133, taken near the end of the program.


The remaining 24 credit hours will be chosen from the Electives list and should include a minimum of 3 one-credit-hour courses



Each student will receive advising throughout the program to aid with course selection and can use the Plan of Study Worksheet tool for drafting a plan. For a complete list of Required, Core and Supplemental courses go to our approved Course List page.



On average our students take 4-5 credit hours a semester. The program can be completed in a minimum of 18 months and a maximum of 7 years. Students typically complete the degree in about 3 years.
