The Engineering Technology Department at Cleveland State University offers two degree programs, leading to a Bachelor of Science in Electronic Engineering Technology or a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering Technology. These are upper-level-only baccalaureate degree programs. Students must first earn an Associate of Applied Science degree in electronic or mechanical engineering technology from an accredited college, university or technical institute before transferring to Cleveland State University to complete the upper-division courses in the program.

The 2+2 program’s primary goal is to provide the student with sufficient skills to obtain immediate employment after completion of the Associate of Applied Science degree, while providing a path for furthering education and career opportunities with the completion of the Bachelor of Science degree.

The Electronic Engineering Technology and Mechanical Engineering Technology programs are offered on an evening basis only, requiring two years for completion. If a student chooses to take courses on a part-time basis, a longer time is needed.

Courses include applied math, science, communications, and senior design, among many others.

CAREER OPPORTUNITIES

Projected growth in all engineering fields is three to nine percent through 2012. Cleveland State University’s engineering technology graduates are employed in a diverse range of industries including industrial control and automation, aerospace, medical, computer, defense and telecommunications industries.
