Contact: Dr. Matt Kropf

The proposed curriculum is designed to provide an introductory level education of multi-disciplinary engineering technology skills to incoming students.  The coursework will achieve this through the broad requirement of physics, calculus, and general engineering technology courses.  In addition to these core competencies, the program introduces the students to a variety of energy-related industries.  With this combination, students are then encouraged to begin specialization through selection of concentration electives.  Specifically, students can focus on energy efficiency, renewable energy, or conventional energy resources.  This organization helps students to translate the learning of applied skills to current needs in the industry, making them more marketable in the field.  Finally, a curricular emphasis on sensors and controls will be implemented through required coursework in SCADA systems, sensor and automation.  This emphasis is in response to the pervasive growth in the use of sensors and robotics in nearly all energy-related industries, and more broadly, in nearly all industries with a need for engineering technology graduates.


Area of Concentration:

Students are encouraged to begin specializing in a selected area of Energy.  Accordingly, the degree requires at least 6 credits in one of the following focus areas.


  • EGET 11XX*   Energy Systems Efficiency   
  • MET 1161       Manufacturing Processes       
  • MET 1061       Manufacturing Lab                
  • MET 1170       Machine Design                     
  • MET 1116       Heat Transfer                         
  • MET 1154       Fluid Mechanics                    
  • MET 1155       Fluid Mechanics Lab 


129 Credits
