Engineering Technology, Engineering Technology Concentration, M.S.
The Engineering Technology Concentration in the Master of Science in Engineering Technology (M.S.) program is offered through the College of Basic and Applied Sciences.
The Engineering Technology M.S. program, geared toward full-time professionals with night classes, addresses dynamic changes in business and industry. Technically competent professionals can improve their skills to help them successfully transition into leadership positions in their field of expertise and into a general leadership role outside their area of technical expertise as their careers grow.
Students are educated at the master's level in core engineering technologies and the management of those technologies. The program incorporates courses covering topics common to all areas of the technology sector of industry, including Six Sigma, Lean Manufacturing, state-of-the-art technologies, alternative energy sources and conservation, engineering project management, applied research, and safety.
澳门六合彩规律论坛's graduate degree includes both thesis and non-thesis options. The non-thesis option includes a research and a business/industry project that must demonstrate Six Sigma methodology. Each course offers an industry component that provides real-world experience, while students also conduct applied research in several classes.
Faculty members are highly experienced in their fields and have close ties to area industry.
Under the Engineering Technology concentration, the degree requires the student to select courses, as approved by the graduate advisor, that provide the student with a technical area of specialty or a minor in another department. Currently, typical technical areas include computer systems and networking, mechatronics, robotics, energy harvesting, instrumentation and control, analog and digital electronics, automation, machine design, manufacturing, quality control, and optimization. Other technical areas or a minor can be designed to meet the student's individual needs if approved by the graduate advisor.
This program teaches students interpersonal, management, and engineering skills needed for success in technology-driven organizations, whether public or private. The focus on these enhanced skills reflects an increasing need in the workplace for graduate students to fast-track into engineering/technical management or high-value specialty knowledge management positions. Industry areas include manufacturing/assembly, medical, human resources/training, and service (retail, food service, etc.), as well as applied sciences. Some potential positions for degree-holders
