The School of Engineering Technology offers "two-plus-two" programs in engineering technology. Students in these programs may work toward a two-year associate degree and then continue to earn a four-year bachelor's degree. The programs include both classroom and laboratory experiences that stress the application of established engineering and computer knowledge and methods to the solution of problems. They include study of the sciences and mathematics necessary to support a technology, as well as study of the methods, processes, skills, and materials used in that technology. The programs are designed to prepare graduates for job opportunities in industry and the public sector. Demands developed by an expanding technology place graduates of these programs in one of the fastest-growing occupational groups in the country.

Associate of Technical Study Degree

The School of Engineering Technology offers an Associate of Technical Study (ATS) degree in

  • Power Plant (Electrical Utilities) Technology.

Students in this program are awarded academic credit for skills-related experience and training to compliment the academic coursework at YSU.

Associate of Applied Science Degree

The school offers two-year programs in:

  • Civil and Construction Engineering Technology
  • Drafting and Design Technology
  • Electrical Engineering Technology
  • Mechanical Engineering Technology

Graduates of these programs are awarded the Associate of Applied Science degree and may serve as engineering technicians.

Graduates of the associate degree programs are prepared to support scientists and engineers. Their work is in the design, drafting (CAD), development, testing, and production phases of engineering projects. Their tasks include laboratory testing, data gathering, evaluation, and instrument calibration. They may perform quality-control tests, serve as technical sales representatives, or serve as technical writers in the formulation of specifications or trade manuals.
 
Drafting and design graduates work with engineers, architects, and technicians in converting ideas, designs, and sketches into workable plans and specifications using 2D and 3D solid modeling CAD techniques.

Degrees in these programs may be earned in four semesters if students average 17-18 hours per semester.

Bachelor of Science in Applied Science Degree

The civil and construction engineering technology, electrical engineering technology, and mechanical engineering technology programs are based on the "two-plus-two'' educational system which provides the student with the flexibility of earning an associate degree and a bachelor's degree according to his or her needs. After completing the requirements of the associate degree, the student may elect to either enter industry or, through an added two years of full-time study (averaging 17 hours per semester) or equivalent part-time study, earn the Bachelor of Science in Applied Science (BSAS).

Graduates of the BSAS degree program obtain employment as engineering technologists or engineering designers for government agencies, consulting engineers and architects, industry and manufacturing, and contractors. Because their education is more extensive, they are prepared for more responsibility and more-rapid advancement. BSAS engineering technologists and designers plan, design, inspect, and direct construction, production, and maintenance activities.

Based on an evaluation of their work, transfer students who have a related associate degree from a regionally accredited institution may be admitted to the bachelor's degree program at the junior level.

Accreditation and Registration

The civil and construction, electrical, and mechanical engineering technology associate and bachelor programs are accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of the Engineering Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ETAC-ABET). Graduates are qualified to apply to the National Institute for Certification in Engineering Technologies (NICET) for certification procedures in various specialty areas, depending on academic major and employment area. In many states, including Ohio, West Virginia and Pennsylvania, bachelor's degree graduates are qualified to take the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam, and, with sufficient work experience, the Professional Engineers (PE) exam.

Admission Requirements

Admission to all School of Engineering Technology programs requires at least one year of high school algebra and one year of high school geometry with grades of "C" or better. Transfer students must be in good standing at their previous institution. All freshmen must take the Mathematics Placement Test prior to admission into the School of Engineering  Technology.

Students not meeting the admission requirements are enrolled as pre-majors in the College of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. While advising is provided by professional advisors within the college, these students are also encouraged to see the coordinator of the program in which they are interested for further orientation.

Qualified engineering technology students must enroll in the ENTC 1505 Engineering Technology Concepts courses. It is designed to acquaint students with the nature of this career area, and therefore assist prospective students in determining the level of their interest. ENTC 1505 Engineering Technology Concepts is required of all engineering technology majors.

Power Plant (Electrical Utilities) Technology

This program prepares graduates to perform basic operating functions required in electric utility power plants and other related industries. Students gain knowledge in:

  • electrical theory
  • electrical machinery and controls
  • power plant operations
  • boiler, turbine, and generator operations
  • power plant instrumentation
  • pollution control equipment

In addition, college writing, oral communications, and general education form an integral part of the program. Upon successful completion of the program, students are prepared for entry-level employment in the utility industry.
