FAQ: Bachelor’s in Engineering Technology Degree

What is engineering technology?

Engineering technology focuses on the practical application of engineering principles in various industries, emphasizing hands-on skills and problem-solving techniques. It encompasses the implementation of existing technologies to address real-world challenges and may involve collaboration with engineers on projects ranging from manufacturing and construction to telecommunications and renewable energy.

Why should students earn a Bachelor's in Engineering Technology?

An Engineering Technology Degree program offers a practical, hands-on approach to engineering that emphasizes the application of engineering principles to real-world problems. It focuses on preparing you for careers in a variety of industries, where you can contribute to the design, development, testing and implementation of engineering solutions. You’ll also develop strong technical, project management and problem-solving skills to help you as you advance in your career.

What are the differences between engineering and engineering technology?

The main differences between engineering and engineering technology (ET) lie in their focus and approach:

  • Focus: Engineering programs emphasize theoretical concepts, math and scientific principles, preparing you to conceptualize, design and innovate new technologies and systems. ET programs, on the other hand, focus more on the practical application of engineering principles and methods, emphasizing hands-on skills and the implementation of existing technologies to solve real-world problems.
  • Depth vs. Breadth: Engineering programs dive into specific engineering disciplines, such as electrical, mechanical, civil or aerospace engineering, providing a comprehensive understanding of the underlying theory and principles. ET programs, while still covering fundamental engineering concepts, tend to have a broader scope and may include coursework in areas such as computer-aided design (CAD) and project management.
  • Career Path: Graduates of engineering programs typically pursue careers as engineers, where they are involved in research, design, development and innovation. ET graduates, sometimes referred to as engineering technologists, typically work in technical or support roles, assisting engineers with the implementation, testing and maintenance of engineering projects and systems.

Overall, while both programs lead to rewarding careers in the engineering field, they cater to different career aspirations and interests, with engineering programs focusing on innovation and design and ET programs emphasizing practical application and implementation.
