“Completing the Master of Science in Engineering and Technology Management at Louisiana Tech provided me the advanced skills I desired to raise my job performance to a higher level and be a more effective Industrial Engineer. I believe the graduate courses in Statistics, Logistics, Global Competitiveness, etc. enhanced my value to my employer and helped prepare me for whatever the future holds for my career. Tambry L. Calhuon, Industrial Engineer, Manufacturing Firm
“In my opinion the Master of Science in Engineering and Technology Management is a new MBA for technically inclined persons. Increasingly engineers are asked to perform non-technical tasks and supervise other workers. The MSETM program provides all the necessary building blocks for an Engineer who wishes to move beyond just being an Engineer into an upper management position. This degree gives Engineers the ability to communicate with and understand management while also giving Business students the ability to communicate with Engineers each on their own respective level. Large companies are looking for people with the ability to handle management as well as technical positions and Louisiana Tech is one of the best universities providing this type of program.” Blake Hosli, Consultant, Electrical Engineering Consulting Firm
“I appreciate the effort by Louisiana Tech University to mold a degree program that can be obtained by working professionals. The online classes have assisted me in making the dream of a graduate degree a reality.” Daniel Thompson, Civil Engineer, Consulting Firm
