Offers programs that are based on applications of technology to solve engineering problems. Technology is hardware, software and techniques. Our programs introduce experiential learning activities in virtually every course, and emphasize hands-on laboratory activities with fewer instances requiring the abstract manipulation of mathematics. ETEC graduates are in high demand and work side-by-side with other engineering graduates in a variety of technical fields.


BSET in Construction Engineering Technology, Electrical Engineering Technology and Mechanical Engineering Technology are accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET.

What is Engineering Technology?

Engineering Technology (ET) at the University of North Texas' College of Engineering offers degree paths to a career in engineering. There are over 100 institutions in the U.S. that offer similar degree programs. Common to all is the educational philosophy of using mathematics, science and engineering fundamentals in the analysis and implementation of technology-based solutions to engineering problems.
