The Master of Science in technology explores the technologies found in our industrial society, such as implementation and utilization of machines, materials, software, and other technical means, as well as the relation of those elements and systems to human beings, society, and the culture. This program offers three concentrations: engineering technology, digital media, and entrepreneurial leadership.

The concentration in engineering technology includes coursework in quality management, project management, and continuous quality improvement. Advanced work in the technical options (such as electronics and manufacturing) can be taken along with relevant courses in management, business administration, computer science, and mathematics.

The digital media concentration provides instruction in the latest techniques of animation, 3D visualization, digital video, interactive multimedia, and digital media project and process management. For more information and examples of student work, visit the web site http://digm.etsu.edu.

The Entrepreneurial Leadership concentration was formed to provide our graduate students with skills that will help them thrive in the global economy of the twenty first century. The purpose of the Entrepreneurial Leadership concentration is to respond to the ever-increasing need for entrepreneurial leadership skills in the commercialization of innovative technology, and to respond to the broader application of entrepreneurial thinking in existing technology based businesses, health care and higher education. This program is designed to provide the innovative, prudent risk-taker with a practical approach for commercializing innovative technology and for creating wealth by finding implementation methods for transforming creative ideas into value producing technology based business models. In this context wealth can be measured in financial terms or in terms of value added in a social or not-for-profit scenario.

All graduate students, regardless of their concentration, must complete at least three (3) ENTC graduate courses to receive the Master of Science in Technology degree.
