Engineering Technology Program

The BS degree program in Engineering Technology program offers concentration in Computer & Information Technology and Mechanical & Automation Technology.

Curriculum includes courses in circuit analysis, analog and digital circuits, digital communications, computer networks, microcontrollers, applied mechanics, instrumentation, computer aided design, machine design, control systems, operations management, and robotics and automation. 

Mission Statement

To empower students to become innovative problem solvers and function effectively in today's global, rapidly changing; diverse work environment by offering a dynamic curriculum that provides an academic foundation for lifelong learning in the engineering technology field.

Program Educational Objectives

The B.S. in Engineering Technology program will produce graduates who will:

  • PEO1: Actively remain aware of the professional and ethical standards in the field of engineering technology through pursuing or completing an advance degree, professional development course and/or engineering certifications.
  • PEO2: Effectively use communication skills and tools to productively work in a team environment with others of diverse cultural and interdisciplinary backgrounds.
  • PEO3: Apply fundamental principles of engineering technology to solve complex problems and/or design systems that contribute to the efficiency or effectiveness of their professional organization.
  • PEO4: Utilize technology and leadership skills to make sound decisions to implement, manage and integrate systems or processes that comply with professional standards.

Student Learning Outcomes

The current student learning outcomes (coded as SO1 to SO11) for the Engineering Technology are modeled after the ABET-ETAC a-k student outcomes:

  • SO1: Student will be able to select and apply the knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of the discipline to broadly-defined engineering technology activities
  • SO2: Student will be able to select and apply knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to engineering technology problems that require the application of principles and applied procedures or methodologies
  • SO3: Student will be able to conduct standard tests and measurements; to conduct, analyze, and interpret experiments; and to apply experimental results to improve processes
  • SO4: Student will be able to design systems, components, or processes for broadly-defined engineering technology problems appropriate to program educational objectives
  • SO5: Student will be able to function effectively as a member or leader on a technical team
  • SO6: Student will be able to identify, analyze, and solve broadly-defined engineering technology problems
  • SO7: Student will be able to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in both technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature
  • SO8: Student will be able to understand the need to engage in self-directed continuing professional development
  • SO9: Student will be able to understand and commit to addressing professional and ethical responsibilities including a respect for diversity
  • SO10: Student will be able to recognize the impact of engineering technology solutions in a societal and global context
  • SO11: Student will be able to commit to quality, timeliness, and continuous improvement
