Welcome to the Department of Engineering Technology!

"The degree is Engineering Technology, the career is engineering."

As a profession, engineering covers a wide range of activities from Conceive and Design to Implement and Operate (CDIO ™). Technology falls within the Implement and Operate phase of the CDIO framework.

Engineering technology is the profession in which knowledge of the applied mathematical and natural sciences gained by higher education, experience, and practice is devoted to the application of engineering principles and the implementation of technological advances for the benefit of humanity. Aimed at preparing graduates for the practice of engineering that is close to the product improvement, manufacturing, and engineering operational functions, engineering technology education for the professional primarily focuses on analyzing, applying, implementing and improving existing and emerging technologies.

By definition then, our degree plans are designed with experiential learning as the educational backbone. Our project-based labs are synchronized with the lectures and designed to stimulate student innovation.
