The department serves two basic roles. In the broader sense, it provides exposure to technology in theory and in practice for general understanding and interpretation of industry. In a more practical sense, the department provides technology-based education that results in professional technical careers in industry. Career opportunities for graduates are in industry/business.
The Master of Science with a major in engineering technology offered by the Department of Engineering Technology builds primarily upon accredited baccalaureate degree programs in engineering and in engineering technology, and in related fields including computer science, mathematics, and physics. The degree provides an advanced knowledge of engineering technology tools and an understanding of their direct application to current and emerging industry requirements.
The MS degree offers thesis and non-thesis options in the specializations areas of construction management, electrical systems, engineering management, and mechanical systems. In collaboration with the College of Business, a dual MS/MBA program is also available to qualified candidates.
Research in engineering technology entails the systematic application of advanced science, engineering and mathematics to synthesize an implementable solution to a problem of industrial relevance using known or emerging technology. The word “technology” is used to include appropriate hardware specific to any engineering discipline; software such as CAD/CAE; or an abstract design technique or an algorithm described in a textbook, a patent or any other scholarly publication. Therefore, research in engineering technology is naturally translational, applied and led by short- to medium-term industry needs.
The department offers a graduate program with thesis and non-thesis options leading to the following degrees:
- Master of Science with a major in engineering technology (thesis)
- Master of Science with a major in engineering technology (non-thesis)
Admission to graduate study at UNT is described in the Admission section at the front of this catalog.
Applicants should hold an undergraduate degree in a technical field of study. Applicants not meeting this qualification may be admitted with a provision to incorporate undergraduate deficiencies. In addition, applicants must meet departmental requirements for the Graduate Record Examination scores. Contact the department or the Toulouse Graduate School for information concerning competitive admission test scores.
For advice regarding the procedure for obtaining a degree plan, which is to be submitted prior to the completion of 6 semester hours, see a graduate advisor in the departmental office, Discovery Park, Room F115.
The department has scholarships and research/teaching assistantships available for full-time graduate students. For additional information, make inquiries to a department graduate advisor.
