Engineering Technology Curriculum

Most lab classes have fewer than 25 students, and they complete their lab work in groups of three or four. 

To see a student project example, please see our:

Learning Outcomes

  1. Interpret and apply basic concepts of materials science such as strength of materials, structural properties, conductivity, and mechanical properties. Perform various non-destructive and destructive materials testing procedures.
  2. Analyze and apply basic electricity and electronic principles within the various engineering environments and applications such as industrial robots, controls, and other such systems.
  3. Monitor and control manufacturing processes or other industrial systems.
  4. Select appropriate manufacturing processes for product production applications such as forming, molding, separating, conditioning, joining, and finishing.
  5. Utilize 2-D and 3-D computer-aided design systems to create drawings and models for products, machines, jigs, fixtures, and other mechanical devices used in engineering environments.
  6. Read and interpret engineering documentation such as blue prints, technical drawings and diagrams, production plans, tooling plans, quality plans, and safety plans.

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.
