The Department of Engineering Technology offers the Master of Science degree in Engineering Technology with thesis and non-thesis options, and concentrations in Engineering Technology and Occupational Health and Safety. Under the Engineering Technology concentration, the degree requires the student to select courses, as approved by the graduate advisor, which provide the student with a technical area of specialty. Currently, typical technical areas include manufacturing, environmental safety, computer integrated manufacturing, electronics, drafting and design, and quality control. Other technical areas can be designed to meet the student's individual needs, if approved by the graduate advisor. 

Admission Requirements:

The application deadline is April 15 for those wishing to be considered for graduate assistantships and admission in the Summer or Fall. October 1 is the application deadline for admission in the Spring. Applications will be accepted after these dates, but admission consideration is not guaranteed.
