Association of Technology, Management, and Applied Engineering

ATMAE logo

The USA based Association of Technology, Management, and Applied Engineering (ATMAE) was formerly known as the National Association of Industrial Technology (NAIT). ATMAE sets standards for academic program accreditation, personal certification, and professional development for educators and industry professionals involved in integrating technology, leadership and design. Its primary mission is faculty, students and industry professionals dedicated to solving complex technological problems and developing the competitive technologist and applied engineering workforce.

ATMAE Scope of Recognition: Associate, baccalaureate, and master’s degree programs in technology, applied technology, engineering technology, and technology-related disciplines delivered by national or regional accredited institutions in the United States.(2011)[9]

The ATMAE accreditation is recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation also known as CHEA and holds the same acknowledgment that is given to the Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology (ABET).[8]

Recognition

Senior-Level CSEG, CSMS, CSTM, and CSTP Certification Eligibility: Individuals meeting the following criteria are eligible to be certified by ATMAE in the higher-level "senior" certification programs, Certified Senior in Engineering Graphics (CSEG). Certified Senior Manufacturing Specialist (CSMS), Certified Senior Technology Manager (CSTM), or Certified Senior Technical Professional (CSTP): Currently Certified as a CEG, CMS, CTM, or CTP or are eligible for those programs: The applicant must be eligible for (i.e., passed exam, and has education, employment, and ATMAE membership prerequisites) or be currently certified in the CEG, CMS, CTM, or CTP programs. Report Minimum Continuing Education / Professional Development Activity Requirement: The applicant must also report thirty (30) Professional Development Units of continuing education activity that were completed prior to the application (within prior three years). NOTE: Coursework completed in pursuit of the academic degree used as the qualifying degree for CEG, CMS, CTM, or CTP certification cannot be used to fulfill this requirement.

Initial CEG, CMS, CTM, and CTP Certification Eligibility: Individuals meeting the following criteria are eligible to be certified by ATMAE in the Certified in Engineering Graphics (CEG), Certified Technology Manager (CTM), Certified Manufacturing Specialist (CMS), Certified Technical Professional (CTP) programs: Pass Examination: The applicant must pass the CEG, CMS, CTM, or CTP examination, and Education: Degree: The applicant must have a technical, technology, or engineering-related degree (AA/AS, BA/BS, MA/MS, or Doctorate), or Equivalency: Equivalent educational qualifications as determined by the Certification Officer based on formal education and professional experience or Impending Graduation: Applicants are also eligible in the final year prior to receipt of a qualifying degree, if impending graduation is verified on the application by an academic advisor. and Employed or Pursuing Graduate Studies: Be professionally employed in a capacity related to technical, technology, or engineering disciplines, either in academia, business, or government, or Be pursuing graduate studies after obtaining the initial technical, technology, or engineering-related degree used as the qualifying degree for certification. and ATMAE Membership: The applicant must be an ATMAE member or must join ATMAE as part of the certification application process.

Certified Technical Professional (CTP / CSTP): The New Certified Technical Professional (CTP) program is designed to serve graduates of both 2-Year and 4-Year Programs. The exam is broad-based, geared to technical programs without a management component that result in either an associate (AS, AAS) degree or a baccalaureate (BS, BA) degree.

Certified Technology Manager (CTM / CSTM) (Formerly Certified Industrial Technologist, CIT / CSIT): The Certified Technology Manager (CTM) program is based on a broad-based multi-subject exam, updated from the old Certified Industrial Technologist exam, which can be used by many technology and technology management programs, regardless of emphasis.

Certified Manufacturing Specialist (CMS / CSMS): The Certified Manufacturing Specialist (CMS) program is geared toward programs with a strong manufacturing emphasis and the exam was developed with help from ATMAE members working in such programs.

Certified in Engineering Graphics (CEG / CSEG): The Certified in Engineering Graphics program is for individuals with a background in the expression of industrial design ideas through engineering graphics, including geometric construction, orthographic views, and standardized annotations. The exam is geared toward the industry standard expression of design ideas as contract documents – used within the industrial enterprise in areas such as manufacturing process planning, quality control, purchasing, and other areas of expertise.

The ATMAE certification program recognizes individual certified members who have met certain professional standards to become certified and to maintain their certification. ATMAE currently operates four programs, the Certified Technology Manager program, CTM & CSTM (formerly called Certified Industrial Technologist, CIT & CSIT), the Certified Manufacturing Specialist program, CMS & CSMS, the Certified Technical Professional program, CTP & CSTP, and the Certified in Engineering Graphics program, CEG & CEGS.

Certification

[7]

Engineering Technology is the field concerned with the application of basic engineering principles and technical skills in support of engineers engaged in a wide variety of projects. Engineering Technology degreed programs typically include instruction in various engineering support functions for research, production, and operations, and applications to specific engineering specialties.[6]

[5]

Engineering Management is the field concerned with the application of engineering principles to the planning and operational management of industrial and manufacturing operations, and Engineering Managers are prepared to plan and manage such operations. Engineering Management degreed programs typically include instruction in accounting, engineering economy, financial management, industrial and human resources management, industrial psychology, management information systems, mathematical modeling and optimization, quality control, operations research, safety and health issues, and environmental program management.[4]

[3]

Technology Management is the field concerned with the supervision of personnel across the technical spectrum and a wide variety of complex technological systems. Technology Management degreed programs typically include instruction in production and operations management, project management, computer applications, quality control, safety and health issues, statistics, and general management principles.[2]
