Engineering Technology is the common thread that weaves itself throughout the manufacturing process. Technicians are involved in all phases of manufacturing from initial concept designs and data research to manufacturing of the final product. They provide support and assistance to engineers, architects, designers, and manufacturers by using modern technology to help design and manufacture a product and bring that produce to market. Graduates gain the skills and hands-on experience needed to compete for good paying jobs in aerospace, maritime, automotive, medical manufacturing and many other industries.
