What will I learn?

The engineering technology program at Southern Arkansas University is a professional degree that specializes in design and analysis in the broad area of engineering technology. The degree will provide skills for graduates to become real world problem solvers. Most of the courses are applied in nature and provide students with the necessary skills to be real world problem solvers in the engineering and manufacturing technology industry. Students will be introduced to modeling and design tools that are widely used in the current job market. More focus will be given to applied aspects rather that theoretical aspects of engineering. Most of the courses will be taught by engineering professors that have work experience in industries. Some of the courses from the engineering program will transfer to the engineering technology program.
