The mission of the department is to provide career educational opportunities to students who have hands-on aptitude and are oriented toward applications.

The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree programs within the Engineering Technology Department involve solutions of design problems, implementation, operation, and testing of engineering and manufacturing systems. Engineering Technology emphasizes an integrated approach to teaching by including both theory and practice in most of the courses which have laboratories integrated into these courses.

The curriculum of all three Bachelor of Science degree programs provide a strong background in technical subjects integrating theory with extensive hands-on laboratory training, mathematics, science, and rounding off with courses in humanities and general education.
