The applied technical leadership degree program is designed for adult learners, working in specialized technical fields, who have completed a two-year associate degree. These learners are seeking a Bachelor of Science degree that builds on the skills gained in the technical associate degree, connects to their career aspirations, and is delivered as an upper-level undergraduate degree online. The online leadership degree provides competency-based expertise in technical leadership development, human resource development and the development of foundation skills for initiatives relevant to a student’s specialized career path.
Gain the practical theory, knowledge, and skills necessary to solve the complex challenges posed by society’s growing infrastructure needs. Through lab work and design projects, civil engineering technology students acquire skills in a wide range of sub-disciplines and put theory and technology to work to solve engineering challenges.
Ensure that hardware and software work effectively together in medical diagnostic equipment, digital cameras, missile guidance systems, anti-lock braking systems, scanners, copiers, autonomous vehicles, routers, and smartphones.
If you are passionate about engineering, science, technology, or manufacturing but aren’t ready to commit to a specific major, the engineering technology exploration option will give you an opportunity to explore your interests. Throughout your first year, you’ll take foundation courses that will introduce you to multiple areas of the engineering core, allowing time to sample some of the foundational courses in a variety of programs. You’ll also gain an in-depth understanding of each engineering technology major, enabling you to identify the program that best meets your interests and career aspirations. Ultimately, you’ll gain a better understanding of the career path you want to pursue.
