Engineering Technology Information


We offer two accredit concentrations electrical with options in electronics and robotics, and in manufacturing with options in manufacturing and robotics. The two concentrations are accredit by Technology Accreditation Commission of Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology (TAC of ABET). We also offer a general concentration with specialization options in civil and mechanical 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. We offer both daytime and evening courses to accommodate students who work while attending Austin Peay. We encourage students 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, we offer Associate Degree programs at Fort Campbell in Automotive Engineering Technology (AET), Construction Engineering Technology (CCET), and Electronics Engineering Technology (EET). We also offer a minor in Engineering Technology. 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.

Construction and Civil Engineering Technology Concentration


For Engineering Technology Majors


 1.  PHYS 2010 - College Physics and PHYS 2011 - College Physics Lab (5 Cr Hr), and PHYS 2020 - College Physics and PHYS 2021 - College Lab (5 Cr Hr) will be used to meet core requirements in science.

2. MATH 1530 - Elements of Statistics will be used to meet core requirements in mathematics.

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 at 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.
