Strong management skills are increasingly important to technical professionals. Managing R&D projects, technological systems, technical organizations and resources, and other professionals requires management knowledge and skills.

Engineers and scientists are faced with these challenges very early in their careers. Typically within three to seven years after graduation, they find themselves addressing complex issues which necessitate that they play two roles simultaneously: the role of the specialist and the manager of technology. Those who choose the management path start moving toward management responsibilities while maintaining identity in their technical backgrounds. The Engineering and Technology Management Department (ETM) has been designed for them.

ETM is a graduate department addressed to the needs of engineers and scientists whose objective is to advance to technical management positions in business, industry, or government. It also addresses the needs of those who are interested in continuing their studies toward a research-based career in engineering/technology management in academic institutions or R&D organizations.

ETM draws on the strengths of the Maseeh College of Engineering and Computer Science, the School of Business Administration, and several other relevant academic disciplines. By utilizing the diverse faculty resources of the University, the program offers the opportunity to study the human, technical, and analytical aspects of management.

Most of the courses in the program are offered during the late afternoon and evening hours to fit the schedule of practicing professionals.
