Establish Yourself as a Successful Applied Engineer!

The Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology is an applied program that allows students to explore the integration of engineering principles and modern technology.

Graduates will use their math, science and engineering skills to design products and systems, install and maintain products, and provide a wide range of services, such as implementation of the design, testing, calibration and supervision of its operation. (American Society for Engineering Education)

Is Engineering Technology the right choice for you?

  • Do you see yourself working hands-on with equipment and materials? 
  • Do you enjoy taking things apart and putting them back together? 
  • Do you spend time figuring out how to build and test your ideas?

If you want a career that is hands-on, where you apply math and scientific concepts, engineering technology could be a good choice for you!

How is Engineering Technology Different from Engineering?

Engineering and Engineering Technology are separate but intimately related professions.

  • Engineering undergraduate programs include more mathematics work and higher-level mathematics than technology programs.
  • Engineering undergraduate programs often focus on theory, while technology programs focus on application.
  • Graduates from engineering programs are called engineers, while graduates of technology programs are often called "technologists.”
  • Once they enter the workforce, engineering graduates typically spend their time planning, while engineering technology graduates spend their time making plans work.
