Welcome to the Department of Engineering Technology
The Department of Engineering Technology offers a Bachelor of Science in Construction Management, a Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology, and a Bachelor of Science in Graphic Communication.
The Construction Management program is specifically designed to develop students’ skills to meet the management/technical needs of residential and commercial construction firms. Construction estimating, materials, surveying, project management, safety, and architectural design are all part of this very popular field of study.
The degree in Graphic Communication combines technical education with instruction in current design and management practices employed in the graphic communication field, as well as the development of knowledge and skills associated with design fundamentals.
Students in the Engineering Technology program learn to organize available workforce, materials, and equipment to design, construct, operate, maintain, and manage technical engineering projects. Additional specific objectives include learning and developing problem solving and critical thinking skills that will be needed by successful industrial managers working with technical applications. The program also includes a strong foundation in business management principles and practices.
