The Department of Engineering Technology at the University of North Texas advances your training and prepares you to design, develop, build and manage modern technological systems.
Our department is the only one of its kind in the Dallas-Fort Worth region and offers course work leading to a Master of Science degree in Engineering Technology. You can also earn a dual M.S. and Master of Business Administration degree.
Our curriculum applies current and emerging technology to solve engineering problems of industrial relevance. Experiential learning activities are introduced in most courses while emphasizing hands-on laboratory activities. The degree offers you opportunities to enhance your analytical, communication and engineering problem-solving skills.
Outstanding faculty and student resources You'll work closely with distinguished faculty members in a small-class setting to solve complex problems faced by businesses and consumers.
You can also take advantage of the university's invaluable contacts with leading companies and corporate partners. Flexible class and lab times are available if you work full time or part time.
Our department's graduates are actively recruited by technical firms and businesses. With more than 1,200 alumni holding technology degrees, we measure our success by our graduates' success.
UNT provides a wide variety of services exclusively to graduate students. The Graduate Student Writing Support office can help you with writing, and the Center for Interdisciplinary Research offers assistance with statistical research.
The Toulouse Graduate School ® offers several professional development workshops, including a Thesis Boot Camp. Many of the workshops are available online for your convenience.
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 the other divisions of a corporation. If you have an undergraduate degree in engineering, engineering technology or another technical field, you'll develop an understanding of businesses.
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 resides at Discovery Park, UNT's 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 graduate school. For graduate school requirements and possible exceptions, visit the grad school website.
Program requirements include submitting GRE scores, unless you've graduated from an ABET- accredited program. The time to complete your graduate degree could be longer than average if you don't have an undergraduate degree in engineering or engineering technology, including appropriate physics, chemistry and calculus courses.
More information about the program's requirements is at the engineering 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'll be admitted to candidacy.
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.
