Diploma in TME

Learn what you need to know to manage a technology-intensive department or to launch a technology-based business with the TME diploma.

Putting you above the rest

The Technology Management & Entrepreneurship (TME) diploma will give you essential skills in business management, entrepreneurship and financial literacy.

There are two ways to get your TME diploma.

Undergraduate students

If you are an undergraduate student, you can earn the diploma along with your degree program by choosing TME courses as electives.

Although our program is part of the Faculty of Engineering, you don’t have to be an engineering student to take TME courses. The DTME requires completion of five courses with a minimum grade of C.


Working professionals can complete the program in two semesters, or take the courses – taught mainly in the evenings – over an extended period of time.

TME courses may be taken on a part-time basis and the diploma will be awarded provided the diploma requirements are met.

Program requirements

Students are encouraged to apply to the diploma program in their first and second years. TME electives and non-TME pre-approved electives may be taken during that time. A minimum of 80 credit hours, or equivalent from an approved, post-secondary program, is required to enroll in TME core courses. Students are encouraged to enroll in the diploma program in their first and second year.

Individuals without this qualification, but with relevant business experience, may also be considered.
