Engineering Technology Majors

Bachelor of Science with a major in Electronics Engineering Technology

This program provides students with both the technological and managerial skills necessary to enter careers in design, application, installation, manufacturing, operation, and maintenance of electrical or electronics systems. Graduates gain skills to analyze, design, apply, and troubleshoot systems with electronic, digital, analog, microcontroller, software, and mechanical components. The combination of practical and theoretical education leads to graduates with diverse technical skills throughout a wide range of applications. Students are required to co-op in industry starting with their second year at school, which often continues and leads to full-time employment.

The EET program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET .

Students are required to complete the core and a track. A minor is not required.

Bachelor of Science with a major in Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering Technology

The accredited Bachelor of Science in mechanical and manufacturing engineering technology focuses on the design and development of parts, processes, and systems. Under this program graduates will acquire knowledge, problem-solving ability, and hands-on skills to enter careers in the design, installation, manufacturing, testing, evaluation, technical sales, or maintenance of mechanical systems. In addition, graduates will have strengths in the analysis, applied design, development, implementation, or oversight of more advanced mechanical systems and processes.

This bachelor’s degree program is designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills needed to succeed as technological engineers in today’s industry. Students are required to co-op in industry starting with their second year, which often continues and leads to full-time employment. Together with the study of engineering principles, design is the cornerstone of the mechanical and manufacturing technology degree program.

The MMET program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET .

Students are required to complete the core plus one track. A minor is not required.
