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 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.
The Department of Engineering Technology provides both advising and courses for students desiring to transfer to other universities to complete degrees in engineering science. Students enrolling in pre-engineering (ENGR) classes at UNT are encouraged to coordinate courses with the requirements of the institution to be attended later.
The Department of Engineering Technology provides courses in the area of microelectronics and semiconductor manufacturing. These MIET courses are provided to assist in the transfer of students with associate degrees in microelectronics and to serve existing students interested in entry-level professional employment in the semiconductor industry.
The department offers undergraduate and graduate programs in engineering technology. The Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology is available with concentrations in electronics engineering technology, manufacturing engineering technology, mechanical engineering technology and nuclear engineering technology. The nuclear engineering technology concentration presently is available at the TXU Comanche Peak Steam Electric Station. The department offers a Master of Science with a major in engineering technology.
The electronics engineering technology concentration is designed to develop the technical and personal knowledge and skill necessary to compete successfully in today's electronics industry. The program builds on a strong foundation in mathematics and science and includes courses in network analysis, linear electronics, digital electronics, communication systems and control systems. Computer utilization is an integral part of all electronics courses and most courses include a laboratory to provide the necessary hands-on experience for an applied program of study. The student's technical background is further enhanced by taking selected courses from other engineering technology concentrations. The development of technical communication and presentation skills is a requirement throughout the curriculum. The electronics engineering technology concentration is accredited by the Technology Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology [Accreditation Director for Engineering Technology, Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, 111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202; (410) 347-7700].
The manufacturing engineering technology concentration prepares students for professional careers
in the manufacturing environment. Manufacturing engineering technologists apply scientific and
engineering knowledge and methods in support of engineering activities. While manufacturing engineering
technologists share much of the mathematics and science background of engineers, their academic preparation tends
to emphasize technical skills and applications resulting in a practical orientation. The major thrust of
the manufacturing engineering technology curriculum is that of factory automation. Graduates commonly
take positions in research and development, process specification and design, reliability/quality assurance
and tool design. The manufacturing engineering technology concentration is accredited by the
Technology Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology
[Accreditation Director for Engineering Technology, Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, 111
Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202;
The mechanical engineering technology concentration is built upon a strong foundation of science, mathematics and technical course work designed to meet the diverse needs of the mechanical designer. Mechanical engineering technology concepts are used in all types of industry and are applied directly to product and tool design and to assist in the manufacturing process. Courses in computer-aided design, product design and development, manufacturing processes and materials, strength of materials and quality assurance provide the student with a broad range of applications for the pursuit of a career in mechanical engineering technology. The mechanical engineering technology concentration is accredited by the Technology Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology [Accreditation Director for Engineering Technology, Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, 111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202; (410) 347-7700].
The nuclear engineering technology concentration is designed to provide breadth of training for operators and related technical personnel at the TXU Comanche Peak Steam Electric Station. The program has a strong foundation in mathematics and science and adds nuclear engineering principles ranging from materials science to reactor design. Courses in fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, electrical circuit theory, electric power generation and automatic control systems augment the curriculum. The program enhances the reactor operator training provided by TXU by stressing the fundamentals of underlying physical and engineering principles behind many plant operating procedures. The nuclear engineering technology concentration is accredited by the Technology Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology [Accreditation Director for Engineering Technology, Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, 111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202; (410) 347-7700].
