  • American Society for Engineering Education, 2017. With the challenges facing us on a global level, there is a new need for technology driven companies to develop their professional and managerial workforce to integrate technical and business skills to solve these difficult problems. Currently, most graduate programs focus on technical skills or business acumen, but not both. The proposed Master of Engineering Technical Management (METM) can fill this gap. METM program is meeting the demand for such professionals and are distinctive among engineering programs in their integration of business, management, engineering and leadership. The Master of Engineering Technical Management is a distance-learning professional graduate program for early to mid-career technical professionals. This rigorous program is industry-oriented, and relevant to electronics, manufacturing, automation, energy, process and related industrial channels. The program targets engineering and technical professionals and allows them to become future leaders in technical management positions, while continuing to work in their companies. The program's curriculum, carefully crafted in consultation with industrial leaders, provides a unique blend of industry-critical skills in managing people, projects and profitability. The curriculum will be taught by three groups of professionals: professors, professorexperts, and the industry experts. The curriculum is 20%, 60% and 20%, analytical, technical management and capstone project, respectively. The graduates of this program will meet industry needs for qualified technical managers and leaders resulting from the expected industrial growth in the short- and medium-term future.
