What Do Alumni Say About the Program?

Alumni Quotes


I have been promoted to Division President. I truly believe that this would not have happened had I not received my MSETM degree. I am very proud of that degree and thank you and the others that helped make it possible.

Mark Perdue, Division President, Leggett and Platt 


Since completing my masters degree, I have doubled my salary! I now have the opportunity to implement and lead world class manufacturing at two facilities. I feel very blessed. Thank you so much. I could not have come this far without my skills learned at WKU.

Susan Mordecai, World Class Manufacturing Site Leader, Saint-Gobain


Like many other professionals, personal and career goals led me to further my education. My undergraduate experience at WKU left a lasting positive impression on me so I decided to try graduate school as well. Now that I have completed the program, I am very satisfied with my choice. This program has given me opportunities in my career that I would not have otherwise. I was a bit skeptical of the program at first, but I quickly realized that the faculty and staff at WKU were well-prepared and were willing to help if I had any questions. Thanks for a challenging and beneficial experience.

This program provides students with necessary resources to remain competitive in a globalizing economy through an effective  learning program. The Engineering Technology Management Master's adds value through its course curriculum and interaction with a diverse group of students.

Christopher Moore, Director of Engineering and Manufacturing, Industrial Gas Technology. Inc.


The program offers students flexible educational opportunities. The ability to concentrate on one course at a time roughly every eight weeks was very appealing and allowed me to focus on academics without overwhelming my family or employment responsibilities. With solid faculty direction, insight, and support, I had a better educational experience with this program than my previous degree program.

Paul Mooney, Compliance Coordinator, Office of Sponsored Programs, WKU


Overall I really enjoyed my experience in this program. I liked that I was able to relate the information from classes to my responsibilities at work.

Chad Ringo, Quality Engineer, Raytheon Missile Systems
