THE DEPARTMENT OF
ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY

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.

Join ETEC at UNT and pursue an undergraduate ETAC/ABET-accredited degree in Construction Engineering Technology or Mechanical Engineering Technology, or a graduate M.S. degree in Engineering Technology. Here at UNT, engineering technology is the degree, but the career is engineering. These programs will help prepare you for the functional engineering tasks of design, re-design, technology implementation and evaluation, product and process improvement, and engineering system operation.

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.
