Undeclared Engineering Technology Option


Students interested in the fields of engineering technology or packaging science but undecided about selecting a specific major should consider the undeclared engineering technology option. Students spend up to one year exploring these majors while earning course credit that can be applied to any of the programs.


Plan of study

During the first semester, students complete basic technical skills courses in the electrical and mechanical disciplines. They also participate in Undeclared Engineering Technology Seminar (ENGT-110), a course that explores the unique characteristics of each engineering technology discipline. After the first semester, students are expected to select a major or begin focusing their studies on a particular discipline (e.g.: civil, computer, electrical, electrical mechanical, environmental management and safety, mechanical, manufacturing, or packaging science). Students in the undeclared option will take courses at different times than the students who declared their major in their first year. However, in most cases, students will begin their third year on track with other students in their major.
