Engineering Technology

The Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology (BSET) program at Wichita State University is a hands-on program based on engineering technology fundamentals, engineering principles, instrumentation, mathematics, science and practical design principles needed to equip students for employment or further education. The focus is on current engineering technology issues and applications used in product design, testing, installation and maintenance to prepare students for careers in manufacturing, cybersecurity, construction, health care, education and technical services or sales.

The BSET curriculum offers four specialized program concentrations:

  • civil engineering technology;
  • cybersecurity;
  • engineering technology management;1 and
    • traditional option
    • hybrid option
  • mechatronics technology.

 In addition to the traditional option (face-to-face), it is also available as an online/hybrid option for coursework in the last two years.

Program Educational Objectives

Within a few years after graduating from the engineering technology program, the graduates would have:

  1. Identified, analyzed and solved broadly-defined engineering technology problems in mechatronics, technology management or environmental sustainability.
  2. Engaged in professional development activities through training, certification or advanced degree in engineering technology or related fields.
  3. Demonstrated the commitment to address professional and ethical responsibilities including a respect for diversity.

Sequence of Courses

The engineering technology undergraduate program requires a minimum completion of 128 credit hours for graduation minus advanced placement credit. Technical elective courses enable a student to graduate with a broad background in engineering technology with a focus in one of four concentrations: civil engineering technology, cybersecurity, engineering technology management or mechatronics technology.
