The Technology Department offers five individual majors, four of which prepare students for technical careers in industry and business. The fifth major, technology education, prepares students for teaching careers. There are two minors, a technology education master's and certification program, and an industrial technology master's offered as well.
The electrical engineering technology (electronics) program prepares students to design, test, and fabricate solid-state circuits and systems (both digital and analog), microwave systems, and control systems. The electrical engineering technology (power and machines) program prepares students to design, test, manufacture, and develop applications for electrical machinery, electrical power systems, and control systems.
The fashion and textile technology program prepares students to work in the
fashion industry in textile and fashion design, CAD/CAM product development, retail management, testing, and merchandising.
Industrial technology offers two concentrations.
Students who select manufacturing specialize in providing technical and managerial support to manufacturing operations. Students who select quality specialize in applying quality measures and controls in manufacturing and service operations.
The mechanical engineering technology program prepares students to design, test, and manufacture machinery used in industry. Technology education prepares students to teach technology and the way technological systems are used to solve problems. The program emphasizes construction, manufacturing, communication, and transportation systems.
