The University offers a bachelor of science (B.S.) degree in engineering technology.
Engineering Technology is a multidisciplinary program that provides a strong engineering technology background
combined with the opportunity to specialize in one or more technology areas. Graduates possess the critical thinking
skills and knowledge of various engineering technologies that are highly valued assets to employers in a wide variety
Coursework includes an engineering technology core that combines laboratory experiences with courses in engineering
technology, mathematics, and science. In addition, students complete a concentration in one (or more) of the following
Automotive engineering technology
Computer engineering technology
Electronics engineering technology
Mechanical engineering technology
Packaging engineering technology
Students also complete the University's Foundational Studies Program, which provides the knowledge students need in
critical thinking, leadership, and interpersonal and communication skills.
The department offers small class sizes, which allow for individual attention. Coursework is centered in the University's
John T. Myers Technology Center, which houses more than 20 state-of-the-art laboratories filled with up-to-date equipment
and supplies. The University has student chapters for the Society of Automotive Engineers, American Society of Mechanical
Engineers, Institute of Packaging Professionals, Society of Manufacturing Engineers, and Females in Technology.
Special Note: The University has a transfer agreement with Ivy Tech Community College that allows for seamless
transfer of Ivy Tech's associate of science (A.S.) in engineering technology to ISU's bachelor of science (B.S.) in engineering technology.
This agreement enables Ivy Tech students to study for two years at Ivy Tech then finish their final two years of coursework
for their bachelor's at ISU. Selected courses in the program are available via distance learning.
Graduates of the Engineering Technology Program will be welcomed into a number of industries, especially in environments
where employers require a broad spectrum of technical competencies and experiences. Those industries include robotics,
automation, manufacturing, automotive, and energy, with starting salaries in excess of $55,000.
Students have many sources of financial support for their studies, including financial aid, work-study programs, veterans' benefits, and special scholarships for entering freshmen and transfer students.
In addition, the College of Technology offers a variety of scholarships and awards.
