Curriculum (Major Courses)
The Engineering Technology sequence requires students to complete 75 hours. These hours are divided into four sections: General Education, Technology Core, Engineering Technology Core, and Electives. To learn more about each course, the prerequisites and any additional degree requirements, we suggest going to the Illinois State University catalog. The following information is for those students who are in the 2012-2014 catalog.
