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 Electronics and Computer Engineering Technology and Mechanical Engineering Technology degrees, consistent with the mission of the university and college, provide educational training in engineering technology specialties and prepare the graduates for entry-level positions in industry. The content, depth, and structure of the engineering technology curricula are continually updated and improved based on inputs from the faculty, student body, university and college administration, and industry representatives, so that it can serve the changing needs of its constituencies.

The mechanical engineering technology program provides a strong and comprehensive foundation in these areas and introduces to students the ideas of fabrication processes, management of people and projects, and cost and quality control. The program focuses on fundamental concepts of statics, dynamics, mechanics of materials, and computer two- and three-dimensional graphics of components. The degree program emphasizes product development, design, manufacturing, design of mechanical systems such as thermal power systems, heating, ventilating and air conditioning, and addresses the area of plastics and composites. The program prepares students for entry-level positions in a variety of career areas in product design, testing, manufacturing, and in plant design and operation. Technical knowledge in the mechanical field is based upon a broad foundation in mathematics, science, and applied science. The program emphasizes applications and extensive hands-on experience in addition to theoretical concepts. In addition to the traditional approach to mechanical design and manufacturing, the program emphasizes computer applications such as computer-aided manufacturing, computer-aided engineering, data acquisition and sensors, robotics, and programmable logic controllers.

The mechanical engineering technology program enjoys strong support from the industrial community and has a successful cooperative education program with a number of local industries. The cooperative education program allows students to practice in industry, gaining early experience while earning academic credit and income to help with their educational expenses. Students may enroll in the co-op program beginning in their junior year.
