Concentration in Technical Operations

The off-site Engineering Technology Program - Technical Operations Program (ETO) enables individuals employed in business, industry and state-related occupations to pursue a four-year degree through part-time evening study. The program is designed for working adults who are seeking career advancement. The Engineering Technology – ETO concentration program is not accredited by ABET:  Please see the ETO Eight-Semester Plan (PDF) for program details.

Students receive instruction through a combination of online and in-person evening classes at several locations but need not come to WCU's Cullowhee campus.

If you have a two-year degree in engineering technology and are interested in earning your bachelor's degree, please contact the Department of Engineering & Technology to discuss the structure and nature of the program and whether it is suitable for your situation.

As a transfer student, you may want to review the transfer admissions information for undergraduates along with the process for transferring credits from a community college or another university to WCU.
