Description

The College of Applied Engineering, Sustainability and Technology provides innovative curricula and degree programs that integrate engineering principles with technology, management and design with a foundation in liberal education. This combination prepares graduates for life-long learning and successful careers.
 
The Bachelor of Sciences degree in Applied Engineering major comprises four concentrations:

  • The Applied Engineering and Technology Management concentration is the field concerned with the application of management, design, and technical skills to the design and integration of systems, the execution of new product designs, the improvement of manufacturing processes, and the management and direction of physical and/or technical functions of an organization. The Applied Engineering programs include instruction in basic engineering principles, project management, processes, production and operations, systems integration and control, quality and statistics. The program can also function as a completer degree for students with engineering technology associate degrees. The majority of the coursework in the final two years focuses on the management of applied engineering and technology.
  • The Computer Engineering Technology concentration integrates theory with hands-on experiences to prepare graduates for computer engineering technology related careers. The program emphasis is on the system-level design, development, integration, management, and evaluation of computer network components and wireless communication. The program focuses on the development of computer system performance analysis and troubleshooting abilities. Laboratory experiences complement the curriculum. Graduates will be able to design, develop, install, interface, upgrade, analyze, evaluate, maintain, repair, manage, and secure personal computer and computer networking hardware, components and systems.
  • The Mechanical Engineering Technology concentration is a technical curriculum concerned with managing and directing the physical and/or technical functions of an organization, particularly those relating to mechanical systems. The program includes instruction in principles of general management, manufacturing systems, systems technology, computer-aided manufacturing, systems analysis, productivity analysis and cost control, and materials planning balanced with a broad-based liberal education.
  • The Mechatronics concentration is concerned with the synergistic integration of mechanical, electrical and computer engineering principles into new automated systems that are extremely reliable, efficient and cost effective. The Mechatronics concentration focuses on instruction of concepts related to motors and controllers, programmable logic controllers, sensors and robotics.
