UCM’s Engineering Technology is a unique program that combines the learning of engineering theory with hands-on application of those theories. Graduates of this program are able to understand theories and perform complex calculations as well as apply what has been learned through laboratory exercises, field experiences, and design/build competitions. If you are a hands-on learner and enjoy learning about how things are made and engineered, this is the degree for you!
There are four options under Engineering Technology:
Option 1- Electronics Engineering Technology (EET),
Option 2- Mechanical Engineering Technology (MET),
Option 3- Industrial Engineering Technology (IET), and
Option 4- Civil Engineering Technology (CET).
Graduates of this program make anywhere from $45,000 - $65,000 per year depending upon location and size of the company. Graduates are also in high demand and typically have multiple job offers upon graduation.
Engineering Technology graduates can end up in a wide range of management positions with a variety of companies. Some of the job titles include: Facilities Engineer, Quality Engineer, Manufacturing Engineer, Design Engineer, Production Manager, Plant Manager, Engineering Technologist, etc. Some of the companies our graduates currently work are: Honeywell, Black & Veatch, Burns and Macdonnell, Gardner Denver, EnerSys, General Electric, Progress Rail, Siggins, WebCo Manufacturing, B/E Aerospace, Roeslein & Associates Inc., etc.
