Engineering Technology

Majors:

Minors:

The School of Engineering also offers a Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology. The programs in which the degree is offered are electronic and computer engineering technology, global manufacturing systems engineering technology, industrial engineering technology, and mechanical engineering technology. The engineering technologist is usually involved in the design, performance evaluation, service and sales of products, equipment, and manufacturing systems or the management of these activities. The management of process operations and plant facilities are also important career paths.

The engineering technology programs provide: (1) specialized technical courses that emphasize rational thinking and the application of engineering and scientific principles to the practical solution of technological problems; (2) courses in applied mathematics and science sufficient to support the technical courses and to prepare the student for future growth; and (3) education to prepare students to communicate intelligently and to take places in society as responsible, humane, complete professionals.

The University of Dayton engineering technology programs prepare graduates who:

  • are competent and productive in the practice of both the technical and communication aspects of their profession;
  • demonstrate ethical and professional standards of conduct
  • exhibit leadership qualities as appropriate for the practice of their profession;
  • are involved in service activities that benefit their profession and their community; and
  • are engaged in continuing professional development.

Electronic and Computer Engineering Technology

The Electronic and Computer Engineering Technology Program (ECT) prepares students for careers in the electronics and computer fields. The ECT curriculum, while including a strong emphasis on computers, centers on applied engineering topics in circuit analysis, analog and digital electronic design, digital communications, digital circuits, microprocessors, software and data acquisition instrumentation. The graduate is prepared to work in industry at a variety of tasks including analog and digital design, microprocessor hardware and software applications, electronic controls, automation, engineering sales and support, product design and development, and data communications. The curricula provide the strong foundation in the basic principles necessary to support any future career studies or development as dictated by changing technology or career roles.

Global Manufacturing Systems Engineering Technology 

Today's global economy has increasingly become borderless and is dominated by multi-national companies. This requires tomorrow's engineers to be able to work efficiently in multicultural teams. The Global Manufacturing Systems Engineering Technology program is creating a new type of "global engineer" both answering industry's demand and giving the upcoming engineer a competitive advantage in today's market place.

In the Global Manufacturing Systems Engineering Technology program you will use state-of-the-art technology to plan, design, and implement the tools and machines needed to produce high quality products at competitive prices. Throughout the program you will also apply important concepts of the lean enterprise, global competitiveness, green engineering concepts, and customer satisfaction.

The curriculum is highly interdisciplinary since the manufacturing professional must possess extensive technical skills and excellent humanistic skills in communications, computers, teamwork, information technology, globalism and multiculturalism. The technical courses emphasize engineering materials and manufacturing processes; mechanical, hydraulic, and pneumatic automation and electronic controls; computer integrated manufacturing; manufacturing planning and control; extensive laboratory experiences; the technical sciences and applied mathematics from college algebra, probability, statistics, calculus, and linear programming. The curriculum contains strong components from the humanities, social sciences, and communications, plus foreign language and multicultural requirements. The technical electives allow the student versatility in developing technical breadth or depth. The program is designed to prepare the graduates for challenging careers in manufacturing and serves as an excellent foundation for a variety of advanced degree options.
