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. Our programs are student-centered to ensure that graduates are accomplished in technical expertise, business practices, industrial management, teaming, communication and leadership skills, lifelong learning, social awareness and ethical responsibility. 

The Department of Engineering Technology offers two MS degree programs (both with options for fully online completion) – MS in Construction Management and MS in Engineering Management (with concentrations in Manufacturing and Industrial Management).  

Students engage in applied research and develop partnerships with industry and/or academia as they develop problem-solving and management skills.  

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 16 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.

Our curricula reflect adherence to established national accreditation standards that are appropriate to each of the technology disciplines offered within our programs. We value continuous improvement and report these results annually. Several industrial advisory committees contribute toward continuous improvement of our programs.
