Why earn a degree in Engineering Technology?

The Master of Science in Engineering Technology is a comprehensive program that provides for a degree of specialization with the proper selection of courses within the major. Students can choose from a non-thesis integrative course option, non-thesis project option or thesis option to find the pathway that best meets their future career goals.

Students will have the opportunity to choose from any one of our three concentrations – Construction Management, Engineering Management or Mechanical Systems – which will help them develop professional skills, such as project management and technical communication, that are widely sought-after by industry.

Each student's program is planned under the direction of a chosen major professor prior to the completion of the first semester of graduate study.

Marketable Skills
  • Formulate applied research problems
  • Communicate engineering problem solutions
  • Apply analytical engineering methods
  • Apply technology tools in engineering
  • Project management proficiency

Engineering Technology Master's Highlights

Research in the department is led primarily by short- to medium-term industry needs. It entails applying 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 utmost in learning environments. Information about recent graduate student research projects is available at the engineering website.
The Department of Engineering is located in Discovery Park, a 300-acre research facility that combines state-of-the-art labs, equipment, offices and classrooms to maximize the potential for creativity, collaboration and technology innovation.
The College of Engineering, in partnership with the Learning Center, also offers a peer tutoring program for personal assistance with coursework.
Full-time students may be able to complete the degree plan in three semesters.

What Can You Do With A Degree in Engineering Technology?

Graduates of the Master of Science in Engineering Technology (MSET) program find rewarding careers as design engineers, mechanical engineers, quality assurance engineers, manufacturing engineers, and product managers. In addition, graduates of the MSET program may also consider a career as an entrepreneur, establishing new companies within the service-providing industries or within product design and development.
