East Tennessee State University Engineering Technology, Surveying & Digital Media

Cohorts

Overview


Are you interested in advancing your career by earning either a B.S. (“four year”) degree in Engineering Technology or an M.S. degree in Technology while taking classes in the greater Knoxville/Oak Ridge area or on-line?

The ETSU Department of Engineering Technology, Surveying, and Digital Media is currently in the process of developing the eighth B.S. Engineering Technology cohort that hopefully will begin with or after the Fall 2012 semester.

ET cohort programs are primarily for students seeking to complete either (a) a four year, B.S. degree in Engineering Technology &/or (b) an M.S. degree in Technology. Cohorts are formed based upon demonstrated student interest. Depending upon a demonstrated level of interest, ETSU may develop one or more program-specific or multidisciplinary undergraduate cohorts for students studying in one of the following Engineering Technology program areas.

Once students have demonstrated sufficient interest, ETSU will also consider forming another graduate-level cohort program for students interested in pursuing an M.S. degree in Technology with a concentration in Engineering Technology.

The cohort, developed to satisfy the needs of previously underserved populations of students within the Knoxville/Oak Ridge metropolitan area, will follow the previous model of engineering technology cohorts by offering a schedule of at least two technical courses taught each term for at least six consecutive semesters. All cohort-related classes will be offered during the evenings and will be delivered either locally (typically on the Pelissippi campus) or via through live or asynchronous methods (e.g., interactive Internet two-way video classroom conferencing or traditional on-line courses).
