About the Program
The Master of Science in Engineering Technology offers courses focused on the technologies used in today’s modern emerging industries. The program is designed to provide specialized engineering technology education to those who currently hold an accredited baccalaureate degree in engineering technology or a related field. The flexibility of the program permits students to select a combination of courses relevant to their individual career goals or to provide the foundation for further advanced study. Courses will be delivered in several modes; face-to-face, on-line, or real-time videoconferencing.
The primary goal of the Master of Science in Engineering Technology is to develop advanced-level practitioners in resolving technical problems through the application of engineering principles and technology.
The program can be pursued on a part-time basis and permits students to select a combination of courses relevant to their individual career goals. The program is also designed to provide the foundation for further advanced study and allows practicing professionals the opportunity to update knowledge and skills based on the latest technological developments in the industrial environment and therefore advance in their chosen careers.
Graduates of the Master of Science in Engineering Technology will be expected to:
- Apply scientific and technological concepts to solving technological problems.
- Apply concepts and skills developed in a variety of technical and professional disciplines including computer applications and networking, materials properties and production processes, and quality control to improve production processes and techniques.
- Plan, facilitate, and integrate technology and problem solving techniques in the leadership functions of the industrial enterprise system.
- Engage in applied technical research in order to add to the knowledge of the discipline and to solve problems in an industrial environment.
- Apply theories, concepts, and principles of related disciplines to develop the communication skills required for technical-managers.
