The Master of Science in Engineering Technology focuses on enhancing technical knowledge and management skills necessary in our competitive technology-intensive world. This program combines qualitative approaches and quantitative techniques in a balanced curriculum that strengthens problem-solving skills and managerial competence.
Some of our students work full time and are enrolled in the program to learn new skills and advance within their companies. For these students, we offer evening classes in Asheville at our Biltmore Park location. Classes meet only once a week and the entire program can be completed in two years. Part-time program brochure
Other students choose our full-time program in Cullowhee. The program is designed to permit students to take courses across disciplines providing flexibility to meet individual career needs. These students also work together with a faculty mentor on an advanced project. Through this personalized mentorship, students are given the skills needed to solve challenging problems that they will face in their future careers. Full-Time Program Brochure
