The mission of the Southeastern Louisiana University Engineering Technology program is to prepare students so that they will establish themselves as successful, practicing engineering technologists in their respective concentration in ET, and will advance themselves professionally by accepting responsibilities and leadership roles for the benefit of society. The Engineering Technology program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
Graduates will achieve professional knowledge, skill and competence in their particular concentration in Engineering Technology.
Graduates will learn to communicate effectively in a professional environment.
Graduates will understand the ethical and societal impact of engineering practices.
Graduates will understand the need for professionalism in their respective field of employment or business.
Graduates will demonstrate job preparedness and specific background training in their respective concentration in Engineering Technology.
The Program Educational Objectives are linked to Student Learning Outcomes which have been mapped to each course in the curriculum.
The field of Engineering Technology is concerned with the practical application of engineering knowledge to support engineering activities. An Engineering Technology program differs from a classic Engineering program in that it is more applied and focused on applications of technology while an Engineering program is focused more on theoretical fundamentals that can lead to the development of new technology.
The objective of the Engineering Technology Program is to emphasize engineering technology fundamentals bolstered by practical experiences, and to prepare students for engineering and technology related professions, advanced education, and lifelong learning. The program will stress the application of sciences to the solution of technological problems, technical knowledge, problem solving skills, and implementation skills.
The following concentrations or specialized areas of study will be offered within this program (the yearly curriculum sheets for each concentration are included below):
