Engineering Technology is that part of the technological field that requires the application of scientific knowledge, engineering knowledge, and methods, combined with the technical skills to achieve analysis and design objectives.
LeTourneau’s engineering technology program offers practical application, coupled with a strong theoretical base. The program prepares students for positions in industry, sales, management, and service in a variety of technical areas.
Our Engineering Technology degree is similar to our Engineering degree, but emphasizes more application of theory and less development of theory than Engineering. As a result, Engineering Technology students spend less time on mathematical derivations and more time on application of existing theory.
The Engineering Technology Program of LeTourneau University will produce graduates that are able to integrate technical knowledge with practical application. These qualities in our graduates will allow them to be effective engineering team members in an ever-changing technological environment. This will be accomplished within an interdisciplinary framework and with a sense of Christian vocation and commitment to serving God in society.
The objectives of the engineering technology program are that graduates will:
