A Career in Engineering Technology

Engineering technology is the profession in which mathematics and natural sciences, gained through higher education, experience and practice, is devoted primarily to the implementation and extension of existing technology for the betterment of society. The technologist applies engineering principles and current technology to solve problems and improve facilities, processes and procedures in industry. Engineering technologists may find employment in a variety of positions in business, industry, and government.

Program Overview

This interdisciplinary bachelor’s degree serves associate degree graduates from electrical and computer engineering technology, and industrial engineering technology. It also serves transfer students who have earned an associate degree in related technical programs by allowing them to further their concentration areas and supplement their associate degree with general, technical education.

This program is designed to prepare a broadly educated generalist in industry and technology. The primary goal of the curriculum is to provide graduates with a solid technical foundation which will enable them to adapt and grow into a wide variety of employment opportunities.
