The technologists graduating from this program are applications oriented, building upon a background of mathematics, science, and technology. They interface with engineers at the product level and produce practical, workable results quickly, install and operate technical systems, devise hardware and software from proven concepts, develop and produce products, service machines, programs, and systems, manage production facilities and work groups, and provide support for technical systems’ hardware and software.

Students pursuing this degree should work with the department. Due to the number of hours required, some students may find that this program requires additional time to complete.

Program Student Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this program, graduates will have:

  • 3.1.  An ability to apply knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to solve broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline
  • 3.2.  An ability to design systems, components, or processes meeting specified needs for broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline
  • 3.3.  An ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in broadly-defined technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature
  • 3.4.  An ability to conduct standard tests, measurements, and experiments and to analyze and interpret the results to improve processes
  • 3.5.  An ability to function effectively as a member as well as a leader on technical teams
