Our curricula reflect adherence to established national accreditation standards that are appropriate to each of the technology disciplines offered within our program. We conduct on-going learning outcomes assessment for all of our programs and reporting of these results is updated annually. Input provided by several industrial advisory committees contributes toward continuous improvement and the currency of our curricula and courses.

Our faculty maintain currency in their respective fields of expertise through continual engagement in applied research and scholarship, and through professional development activities. Over just the past three years department faculty have succeeded in securing upwards of $500,000 in external funding from federal and state agencies and from educational foundations. Our faculty have also been very active in publishing the results of their research in scholarly journals. The department is fortunate to be the professional home of such dedicated faculty members who take their commitment to higher education so seriously.

As an applied discipline, Engineering Technology is committed to experiential learning and exploration. The Roy F. Mitte building, which is home to the department, houses 19 well equipped, technical laboratories where students put into practice the principles learned in their classes. Learning by doing is fundamental to who we are, and students can expect to spend a significant portion of their time in a laboratory setting.

The mission of the Department of Engineering Technology is to prepare professionals for innovation and leadership careers in the global industrial marketplace, for the purpose of positively contributing to the well-being of the economy of the State of Texas.
