Establish Yourself as an Engineering Technologist

The Engineering Technology concentration provides a new path for students just starting a degree or returning adults who may have pursued an engineering-related associates or bachelor's program, but for various reasons did not complete.

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.

Choosing Engineering or Engineering Technology?

Engineering and Engineering Technology are separate but intimately related professions. Here are some of the ways they differ:

  • 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.
  • Once they enter the workforce, engineering graduates typically spend their time planning, while engineering technology graduates spend their time making plans work.
  • Graduates from engineering programs are called engineers, while graduates of technology programs are often called "technologists.”
