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;
- engineering technology management,
- mechatronics technology.
Program Educational Objectives
Once our students are out in the workforce, they should be able to:
- Pursue gainful careers and practice successfully in a cybersecurity, environmental, management or mechatronics engineering technology profession;
- Remain technically current and adapt to rapidly changing technologies through continuous learning and self-improvement;
- Demonstrate independent thinking and function effectively in diverse teams to solve open-ended problems in an industrial environment; and
- Communicate effectively and perform ethically and professionally in business, industry and society.
Sequence of Courses
The engineering technology undergraduate program requires a minimum completion of 120 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.
