Professor Ahad Nasab, Head
The mission of the Engineering Technology Management (ETM) and the Mechatronics Engineering Technology (MET) programs at UTC is to provide accessible education in the principles and application of technology and management of technology, while preparing students for life-long learning and being productive in today’s work environment.
Program Educational Objectives (Engineering Technology Management):
In support of this mission, graduates of the ETM program will be able to:
- Demonstrate the necessary understanding of planning, organizing, and problem-solving skills to provide value-added services in technical or management positions;
- Demonstrate good communication skills and be able to function well in multidisciplinary teams as leaders; and
- Appreciate the need for, and to pursue, self-directed professional development opportunities, such as graduate work, trainings, and participation in professional organizations.
Program Educational Objectives (Mechatronics Engineering Technology):
In support of this mission, graduates of the Mechatronics program will:
- Be prepared to hold technical positions that require analysis, applied design, development, implementation, and oversight of mechatronic systems and automated processes.
- Have the knowledge, problem-solving ability and hands-on skills to be successful in careers in the design, commissioning, testing, evaluation, technical sales, or maintenance of mechatronic systems.
- Appreciate the need for, and will pursue, self-directed professional development opportunities, such as graduate work, additional trainings, and participation in professional organizations.
The Program Educational Objectives (PEOs) can be found by the general public on the program website.
The ETM program is an interdisciplinary program leading to the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree while the MET program is a specialized course of student leading to the Bachelor of Applied Science (B.A.S.) degree.
There are two concentrations in the B.S. ETM program:
The Mechatronics Engineering Technology, B.A.S. has no concentrations.
These programs provide a means for transfer students with a technology degree from a two-year program (A.A.S.) to move to a four-year B.S. degree in approximately two years.
The Engineering Technology Management (ETM) program faculty members have degrees in industrial engineering and management and are committed to delivering a technology curriculum that has strong emphasis on technology, management, and engineering analysis and utilization of modern technical tools.
The Mechatronics Engineering Technology (MET) faculty typically hold mechanical, electrical, or mechatronics degrees with extensive background in industrial automation and robotics. The MET faculty are committed to preparing students for today’s highly automated manufacturing environment where the knowledge of engineering fundamentals, system integration, device networking, and project management are essential.
Credits received by transfer for required courses in engineering technology management require a minimum grade of C. Although equivalents will be awarded for D grades, students must retake the courses.
Degree and Accreditation:
ETM program graduates obtain a B.S. degree. The ETM program, with concentrations in Construction Management and Engineering Management, is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission (ETAC) of ABET Inc,1 the accrediting agency for technology programs.
