Engineering Technology College Description and Special Characteristics

The Department of Engineering Technology defines “technology” as: hardware, software, and techniques. Therefore any physical equipment, artifact, or hardware tool utilized in an engineering field (e.g., any device, instrument, machine, sensor/transducer/actuator, data acquisition/processing card, or materials); any software-based engineering simulation, analysis, or design tool; or any engineering design technique, process or algorithm described in a textbook, a patent, or any other scholarly or trade publication, is technology.

Engineering Technology graduates are skilled in the immediate use of technology to solve engineering problems faced by industry.
