About our Program
The engineering technology program at WVU Tech provides multiple paths to earning the Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology (BSET). Students may enroll at WVU Tech as transfers into the upper division of our 2+2 program after completing their first two years of engineering technology study (earning an AAS/AS degree at a community college).
At WVU Tech, our engineering technology programs provide students an opportunity to learn through a hands-on orientation that challenges students to think critically, communicate effectively and work in teams to solve problems. Currently, the Department offers the following disciplinary areas:
- Civil Engineering Technology
- Mechanical Engineering Technology
- Electronic Engineering Technology
- Environmental Engineering Technology
- Industrial Technology
The civil engineering technology, electronic engineering technology, and mechanical engineering technology programs are accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET.
The Department of Engineering Technology at WVU Tech is focused on the achievement of excellence in education. We strive to be among the best engineering technology programs both nationally and internationally, reflecting the excellence of our programs, research, faculty, staff, students and graduates.
Our programs serve the need of a global, 21st century workforce by supplying highly competent, liberally educated and technically capable graduates. We provide access and educational opportunities to graduates of AAS/AS programs and to citizens of West Virginia and surrounding states.
What’s the difference between Engineering and Engineering Technology Majors?
