With the goal of preparing you to succeed in the next generation of industrial and engineering technologists, the Department of Technology offers a curriculum focused on developing your fundamental and technical management skills to excel in today's ever-changing technological world.

Your classes mix theoretical education with industry-based, hands-on opportunities that expand your understanding of applied engineering and how science, math and computers all relate in this unique area of technical education.

We've developed a broad range of classes to give you a solid foundation and in-depth analysis of laboratory instruction, equipment and applications being used today by professionals in a variety of technology fields. We emphasize engaged learning, which means you can expect to be involved in real-world projects developed through government and industrial partnerships.
