Engineering Technology

Program Overview

The engineering technology program focuses on the hands-on implementation of engineering principles supported by a strong knowledge of mathematics and science. You'll apply your learned competencies to design products, processes, and systems.

The program leads to a Bachelor of Science degree in engineering technology (120 credit hours).

Graduates are qualified to pursue licensure as a professional engineer.

Student Outcomes

The engineering technology program is designed to provide you the following outcomes:

  • An ability to apply knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to solve broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline
  • An ability to design systems, components, or processes meeting specified needs for broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline
  • An ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in broadly-defined technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature
  • An ability to conduct standard tests, measurements, and experiments and to analyze and interpret the results to improve processes
  • An ability to function effectively as a member as well as a leader on technical teams

This program further allows you to focus your engineering technology studies in one of the following concentrations:

  • Architecture
  • Electronics Engineering Technology
  • Energy Management Engineering Technology
  • Manufacturing Engineering Technology
