Admissions Requirements and Application Instructions

Admission Standards

The standard for admission to the Master of Science or Certificate in Engineering and Technology Management programs is: (1) a Bachelor's or higher degree in engineering, technology, or physical/mathematical sciences with a 3.0 GPA, (2) relevant and current employment since graduation with a bachelor's degree.  Occasionally applicants not meeting these standards may be granted probationary admission based upon their overall academic and professional practice history and accomplishments. The admission requirements and processes for the MSETM degree and the Certificate in Engineering Management are identical.

Deadline

Applications are accepted any time and are reviewed as received.   Allow approximately two weeks from the time a complete application is submitted for an admission decision.  Admitted students may begin taking classes during the next course offering or semester following their admission.

Application Process

Admission to the ETM Program at Oklahoma State University requires that an applicant first be admitted to the Graduate College.  After an application satisfies the requirements of the graduate college it is referred to the ETM office for review.
