FAQs
 
What are the benefits of receiving a Graduate Certificate in ETM ?
The OSU ETM certificate is a graduate-level credential reflecting knowledge of the discipline of engineering management.  It provides:

  • Documented participation in a focused program and coursework with the same rigor as a graduate level degree
  • The opportunity to expand the participants management skills and/or complement your B.S. field of study with management education
  • Participation in an academic community of faculty and students with a common interest
  • A ladder path to the MSETM degree (all twelve hours can be used toward degree)
  • Demonstrated progress towards the M.S. degree that your employer can see
  • A printed certificate and record in your transcript from the OSU Graduate School to document successful completion

Do I have to choose one program or the other?
No. Students may matriculate through both programs  simultaneously. Note that  a separate applicaiton MUST be submitted for each program (Cert and MS degree).  When the requirements of the certificate are met the student may request that their efforts be noted and a certificate will be issued.  All credit hours earned for the certificate can then be counted towards the M.S. graduation requirements.
 
Are there any additional costs?
If pursing both a certificate and the MS degree, students must pay a “second application” fee of $50 to the graduate college.
