Department Mission Statement

  • The Engineering Technology Department motivates students to think creatively, to acquire analytical and technical skills, and to excel through its excellent teaching and service in an innovative learning environment.
  • The Engineering Technology program provides a seamless transition for students that have completed associate degree requirement to a baccalaureate degree in engineering technology.
  • A major part of our mission is to serve the military community at Fort Campbell with programs that meet the needs and interests of military personnel, family members, retirees and civilian from the community. 
  • Our programs prepare people in the region for employment opportunities with industrial employers. Likewise, we serve these employers both by preparing graduates for initial employment and by offering educational opportunities for current employees needed for advancement. 

Educational Objectives

  • Graduates manage projects from problem identification to hands-on implementation.
  • Graduates function effectively in a teams environment and communicate effectively in spoken, written, and graphical forms. 
  • Graduates are proficient in the use of engineering technologies as tools to solve real world problems.  
  • Graduates recognize professional, ethical, and social issues in practice.
  • Graduates demonstrate a commitment to quality and dependability.
  • Graduates stay current professionally.

Student Outcomes

  • Students analyze problems, plan and conduct tests, interpret and use test results to develop solutions. 
  • Students create and implement solutions integrating people, productivity software and equipment.
  • Students communicate information in written, oral, and graphical forms.
  • Students work as a team to deliver results in a timely fashion.
  • Students recognize the importance of quality and the need for continuous improvement. 
  • Students are aware of ethical, social, environmental, and diversity issues; globalization; and the need for lifelong learning.

Capstone Project Courses Requirements

     Designated capstone courses include integrative experience projects where students use diverse elements from the curriculum in a project simulating work in industry.  These courses are to be taken in the student’s final year, and registration is by permit only.  To be allowed to take a capstone course, students should have:

  • Met all lower division engineering technology, math, science, writing, and public speaking course requirements; and
  • Met a least 33 credit hours of upper division major course requirements including both upper division core and concentration courses.

Students should see their faculty advisor for more information and for permission to take a capstone course.  To be approved for graduation, students must be on the graduation list and must complete both the university exit exam and the department exit exam.

NOTE:  The Engineering Technology M.S.E.T. program has now been implemented to begin Fall 2014.  This program can be viewed in the Graudate Bulletin.

For Engineering Technology Majors


We offer two accredit concentrations with options in Electrical Engineering Technology with options in electronics and robotics, and in Manufacturing Engineering Technology with options in subtractive manufacturing, robotics and a new option in additive manufacturing. The two concentrations are accredited by Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology (ETAC of ABET). The department also offers two new concentrations in Automotive and Mechanical Engineering Technology, and in Construction and Civil Engineering Technology. The combination of our technological major and Austin Peay’s liberal arts core is a unique strength of our program. The core helps students develop communication skills, critical thinking abilities, and values for responsible living.

From our facilities at the APSU Center @ Fort Campbell, we offer courses for both main campus and Fort Campbell students. Both daytime and evening courses are offered to accommodate students who work while attending Austin Peay. Students are encouraged to take internships or other job opportunities in industry so they can get practical experience while completing their degrees.

In addition to the Bachelors Degree program in Engineering Technology, the department also offers Associate Degree programs at Fort Campbell in Automotive Engineering Technology (AET), Construction Engineering Technology (CCET), and Electronics Engineering Technology (EET).  A minor in Engineering Technology is also offered.  This is strongly recommended for students in business, technical writing, and other areas where graduates may join technological enterprises.

Following is a program of study; students should use this as a guide, and should consult with their major advisor when selecting courses. A minor is not required with this distributive major. For transfer students, the department chair and faculty will evaluate Engineering Technology transfer courses and will determine whether courses satisfy specific degree requirements or count as electives.
