What will I learn?

Engineering technology emphasizes hands on learning and the practical aspects of engineering. It stresses the understanding and application of established engineering principles to the design, fabrication, and testing of electronic and mechanical products and systems. Engineering technology is a creative blend of the physical sciences, engineering knowledge, methods, and technical skills.

Engineering technology courses emphasize the application of engineering principles to analyze and solve practical engineering problems. Many courses have laboratories and laboratory experience is an integral part of the learning process in the program.

The primary goal of the department is to provide integrated educational opportunities to students whose technological interests and aptitudes are application-oriented. The department fosters applied research, creative design, and service activities, which involve students and faculty. Graduates of the department programs are highly sought after, and are recognized by industry for their practical problem solving skills.
