As a highly educated, technical problem-solver or manager, which next-generation technology will you tackle?
The Department of Engineering Technology at the University of North Texas is the only department of its kind in the Dallas-Fort Worth region. Our department offers masterís degrees in Engineering Systems that advance your training and prepare you to design, develop, build and manage modern technological systems.
We define technology as any:
Our curriculum applies current and emerging technology to solve engineering problems. It introduces experiential learning activities in most courses and emphasizes hands-on laboratory activities.
With small class sizes, you work closely with distinguished faculty members to solve complex problems faced by businesses and consumers. You also can take advantage of the universityís invaluable contacts with leading companies and corporate partners.
If you are working full time or part time, a variety of flexible class and lab times will accommodate your schedule. Most courses are taught in the afternoons, some including labs, and others use distance education methods to make it easier for you to meet work and academic obligations.
Our departmentís graduates are actively recruited by technical firms and businesses. With more than 1,200 alumni holding technology degrees, we measure our success by our graduatesí success.
In this degree program, you may pursue concentrations in the following areas under a thesis or non-thesis option.
If you have an undergraduate degree in business, the dual degree helps you better comprehend how business decisions affect other divisions of a corporation. If you have an undergraduate degree in engineering, engineering technology or another technical field, you develop an understanding of the business side of corporations.
Research in the department is led primarily by shortto medium-term industry needs. It entails the application of advanced science, engineering and mathematics to create an implementable solution to an industry-relevant problem using technology. Our laboratories are well equipped to provide the upmost in learning environments. Information about research projects is available at engineering.unt.edu/technology/research.
The department resides at Discovery Park, UNTís 300-acre research facility. Laboratories supporting each area of emphasis have new computers, software, equipment and instrumentation. Laboratory equipment in other departments is available to support thesis research. Support for research projects in the department comes from various industry, state and federal sources.
In addition to the necessary program requirements, you must meet the admission requirements for the Toulouse Graduate School®. For requirements and possible exceptions, visit the Graduate School website.
Program requirements include submitting GRE scores. If you graduated from an ABET-accredited program, GRE scores are not required. The time to complete your graduate degree could be longer than average if you do not have an undergraduate degree in engineering or engineering technology, including appropriate physics, chemistry and calculus courses.
More information about the programís requirements is at our website.
Your program is planned under the direction of a major professor or advisor during your first semester of graduate study. When the degree plan is approved by the graduate dean, you will be admitted to candidacy.
The 30-credit-hour thesis option consists of 6 credit hours of thesis and 24 credit hours of course work. In pursuing an M.S. under the thesis option, you will develop the topic and design a thesis in consultation with your graduate advisory committee. This option concludes with a thesis defense.
The 33-credit-hour non-thesis option includes a 3-credit-hour project-in-lieu-of-thesis and 30 credit hours of course work.
The credit hours required for the dual M.S./M.B.A. degree vary depending on your academic background.
The department employs several teaching assistants each semester to assist faculty members in teaching laboratories. These positions are awarded on a competitive basis. Research assistant positions are also available based on faculty research projects.
Information about these positions is available by contacting the department. Visit the Financial Aid website for information about other financial assistance programs.
