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.
