Engineering Technology emphasizes practice, lab work, and application of theory. It is a branch of engineering best suited to students who learn by doing. They enjoy a broad, well-rounded curriculum, and have a practical understanding (rather than a purely theoretical one) of the engineering disciplines. Our students can bridge the gap and translate ideas between design engineers and technical staff. And they get hired because of it.
ET students pursue a thorough grounding in all engineering fields with concentrations available in Biomedical Engineering Technology, Computer Engineering Technology, Electrical Engineering Technology, Industrial Engineering Technology, and Mechanical Engineering Technology. Some 70% of ET courses are laboratory-based. The department also offers a Master’s degree track, with both online and traditional face-to-face options.
The department is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission, the recognized accreditor of college and university programs in applied science, computing, engineering, and technology.
