Program Overview

The Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology and Management combines technical courses, with a business minor, quantitative sciences, natural sciences, and general education to prepare graduates for technical, management, and/or applied engineering positions in business and industry. The engineering technology and management program is accredited by the Association of Technology Management and Applied Engineering (for more information see www.atmae.org).

Over 90% of the engineering technology and management courses include lab activities in which students apply the theory they learned in the classroom to "real life" problems and projects. These activities are not simply simulation; they have real outcomes as well as consequences. This activity based, "hands on", approach to learning provides students technical knowledge as well as continuously improving their problem solving skills.

The engineering technology and management graduate is a technical generalist who is competent in assessing problems and proposing solutions to improve productivity related to product specifications, materials and processes, industrial control and information systems, and operations management.
