Engineering Technology is the study of technology and management practices that provides a background in materials, advanced manufacturing processing (metals and plastics), automation (robotics and programmable controllers), CAD/CAM, quality control, process planning, "lean" principles, and project management.
The Engineering Technology major requires students to complete 75 hours. These hours are divided into three sections: General Education, Engineering Technology Core, and Electives. To learn more about each course, the prerequisites and any additional degree requirements, review the Illinois State University Catalog. The following information is for students in the 2018-2019 catalog.Sample 4-Year Plan of Study
Students in the Engineering Technology major are required to complete 400 hours of work experience. To satisfy this requirement, students may complete an internship (TEC 398 Professional Practice) and/or complete and document a minimum of 400 hours of engineering technology work experience. This must be done prior to enrolling in the senior capstone course, (TEC 392) Manufacturing Organization and Management.
