The following Vision and Mission statements for the Department of Engineering Technology at the University of North Texas were approved by department faculty in April 2011.
In collaboration with industry, other institutions, and university departments, the Engineering Technology Department 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 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.
