The Department of Engineering Technology offers four-year degree programs in Engineering Technology with majors in Construction, Electronics, Electronics and Computer, and Manufacturing Engineering Technology as well as its two options: Bio-Manufacturing and Design & Technical Graphics.  In addition, the Department offers a two-year (AAS) degree in Manufacturing Engineering Technology.  The  Department works in collaboration with regional universities to provide engineering transfer programs, a one-year architecture transfer program and 3 dual degree programs in Engineering Technology and Engineering.

Engineering Technology

Engineering technology has been defined as that part of the technological field which requires the application of scientific and engineering knowledge and methods combined with technical skills in support of engineering activities; it lies in the occupational spectrum between the craftsman and the engineer at the end of the spectrum closest to the engineer.

Engineering technology is oriented less toward theory and more toward practical applications. The term "engineering technician" is applied to the graduates of associate degree programs. Graduates of baccalaureate programs are called "engineering technologists."

Dual Degree Program in Engineering Technology & Engineering

Missouri Western Engineering Technology majors have the opportunity to be admitted to a dual degree program between the Missouri Western State University (MWSU) Department of Engineering Technology and The University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Computing and Engineering. This program is designed for students interested in both a B.S. in Engineering Technology and a B.S. in Engineering (Civil Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, or Mechanical Engineering). Students in the program complete the first three years of study in Engineering Technology at Missouri Western State University and two additional years at the University of Missouri-Kansas City in Engineering to earn two B.S. degrees in five years. To be eligible for the dual degree option, students must complete the designated course series outline in the articulation agreement and must maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher. For more information on this dual degree opportunity, please contact the dual degree liaison in the MWSU Department of Engineering Technology.

Transfer Programs

Engineering

The engineering transfer program is closely coordinated with the University of Missouri-Columbia and Missouri University of Science and Technology.

The exact program followed will depend on the specialized area (civil, chemical, mechanical, electrical, etc.) and the engineering school to which the student plans to transfer. Also, many students are not prepared for calculus their first semester and special programs must be arranged. An advisor in the Department of Engineering Technology will set up a suitable program for each pre-engineering student.

Architecture

The architecture transfer program is closely coordinated with the College of Architecture and Design, Kansas State University, Manhattan, Kansas. An advisor in the Department of Engineering Technology will set up a suitable program for each pre-architecture student.
