The MSETM degree program is now the largest graduate degree program in the Ogden College of Science and Engineering.
The Engineering Technology Management master's degree was accredited by the Association of Technology, Management and Applied Engineering (ATMAE) at the annual conference on November 20. 2013. Our program is the first accredited master's degree of its kind in Kentucky and only the fourth in the U.S.to have this designation.
The following students delivered presentations at the ATMAE conference in New Orleans, Louisiana, November, 20-23, 2013.
Sumbul Khan: Improving Pedagogically-Based Laboratory Learning Assigned Textbooks of ATMAE Accredited Programs
Andrew Austin: Improving Process Capability in a Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) Cell with the Use of a Renishaw 40-2 Spindle Probe

Mychal-Drew Moses, a second year WKU MSETM student, received third prize in the Graduate Research Competition at the Kentucky Academy of Science (KAS) Annual Conference held at Morehead State University. The title of his presentation was Fabrication and characterization of blind and through micro-holes in brass using micro scale electrical discharge machining (micro-EDM). Dr. Muhammed Jahan was the faculty mentor. Please congratulate Mychal-Drew on his achievement!
The 2nd Annual MSETM Student, Alumni, and Faculty Homecoming Mixer was held October 25, 2013 at WahBahs. We played Ice Breaker Bingo, ate great food, and talked about the professors. Check out the MSETM Facebook fan page for the photos.

Five graduate students from the Master of Science in Engineering Technology Management (MSETM) attended the Association of Technology, Management, and Applied Engineering (ATMAE) national conference held in Cleveland, Ohio last week.
Adam Ray, a first semester graduate student, was elected to the ATMAE Executive Board as the national student representative replacing Josh Ferriell, an MSETM graduate and WKU alumni. (Josh is now an assistant plant manager with Carpenter Co.)
Seven WKU MSETM graduate students submitted research proposals to the ATMAE Graduate Research Presentation and Poster Competition. Of the seven, Blake Cvengros and Jason Shields were selected as two of the four finalists and invited to present. Also attending the conference were graduate assistants Joleen Byerline and Brittney Perry who presented a paper at last year's conference.
We are very proud of our graduate students in the Architectural and Manufacturing Sciences department's MSETM program. They represent WKU well.
