ETM students excel at national exam

Students from Morehead State’s Department of Engineering and Technology Management (ETM) achieved a 92.68% pass rate on the Certified Technology Manager (CTM) Exam, with 38 out of 41 students attaining a passing score in spring 2018.  

The CTM Exam national exam is administered through the Association of Technology, Management and Applied Engineering (ATMAE) to certify graduates of ATMAE accredited programs. The Department of Engineering and Technology Management has been accredited by ATMAE since 1998, with reaccreditation achieved through 2020. A minimum score of 95 out of 160 in the categories of leadership, self-management, systems, processes, operations, people, project, quality, risk and safety is required to qualify for certification.  

CTM is the initial certification status awarded to applicants who meet ATMAE’s requirements for certification. CTM certification holders may report continuing education activity to qualify for Certified Senior Technology Manager (CSTM) status. ATMAE certification recognizes expertise in a specific field, a mark of distinction that sets the certification holder apart. ATMAE certification provides external validation of knowledge and competence in the discipline.  

“MSU’s Engineering and Technology Management students take the Certified Technology Manager (CTM) exam prior to graduation in their senior year. The chair of the ATMAE Board of Certification reports that the historical average national pass rate for the CTM exam is 67.6% and MSU’s ETM students earned a pass rate higher than 92% in Fall 2018. We are proud of ETM faculty and graduating seniors for their success,” said ETM Department Chair Associate Dean, Dr. Ahmad Zargari.
