Enrique Barbieri, Chair
Engineering technology is the profession in which a knowledge of mathematics and natural sciences gained by higher education, experience and practice is devoted primarily to the implementation and extension of existing technology for the benefit of humanity (Engineering Technology Council, 1994). Increasing technological aspects of all modern activities have led to the need for highly skilled persons to design, construct, install, maintain, manage, operate, produce and sell sophisticated technical systems and products.
Departmental programs emphasize integrated design and the application of theoretical concepts. Classes of carefully coordinated laboratory experiences and lectures are utilized. Courses emphasize theoretical concepts and principles for solutions applicable to modern technological problems. Students are prepared for rapidly changing life experiences with mathematics, science and general education. This preparation is designed to enable graduates to remain current, as well as advance, in their professional field.
In collaboration with industry, other institutions, and university departments, the Department of Engineering Technology is focused on achieving excellence in teaching, innovative applied research, and service. With these concentrations in mind, our goal is to become the leading provider of engineering technologists to the state of Texas and a resource for industrial research.
Our mission is to provide our students with the technical skills and the fundamental engineering technology background needed to be successful in today’s rapidly changing workplace. In addition to developing technical competence, the department shall aim to develop and enhance the students’ written and oral communication skills, knowledge and application of current technology, and teamwork engineering skills to perform safe and sound engineering technology work in a professional and ethical manner. Our department will build and maintain academic and research relationships with local and regional industries to continue to provide relevant curricula and to enhance the employment opportunities for our students.
The department offers scholarships designated specifically for studies in engineering technology. For further information, inquire in the departmental office.
